Accent Evening School (Accent Avondschool) location center offers a safe, structured and professional environment where adults with a mental disability can work on developing their capabilities. The courses offered are very diverse; Dutch, Maths, sports and cooking classes are all on the agenda. English speaking volunteers can help out at the cooking class, textile usage class or sports group. You are also asked to help at the English class, to help the students practise their language skills.
Meeting new people is part of the learning process at this school. With the help of volunteers, students get more personal attention and get extra help on their exercises. Meeting people from abroad is even more exciting!
Starting September 2018 the evening school is located in a new building, the A.J. Schreuderschool (near station Lombardijen).
Every year about 400 students with mental disabilities take courses at one of the locations of the Evening School. At this location international volunteers are welcome every Tuesday and Thursday evening.
