Capacity supports individuals to reach their human potential
We want to live in a society that is open to new things, where each individual can achieve their potential, and where diversity in seen as a strength. To achieve this we support encounters between people from diverse backgrounds (including people with refugee and/or migrant backgrounds) to develop new models of co-operation and interaction. By doing this we support everyone to achieve their full potential in Swiss society, especially those from refugee and/or migrant backgrounds.
What we do
1 - Opportunities for networking and collaboration – creating spaces where refugees, migrants and Swiss people can get to know each other. Many of these have a specific business focus to support refugee and migrant integration to the Swiss work community
2 - Workshops and training events on business and integration topics. The Business Mentoring Programme 2016 is our first formal training support programme for migrants and refugees interested in becoming self-employed or improving their employment chances
3 - Building networks with other organisations, both non-profit and corporate, around the theme of work-place and social integration and support
We need volunteers as:
- Workshop Manager
