Are you creative? And do you fancy a pleasant evening? Then come to CJV Feijenoord!
Every Monday, children can go to CJV Feijenoord for fun activities. The cozy hobby club is for children aged seven to twelve, from the Feijenoord district. Activities vary from clay modelling and painting to making jewelry and baking cookies. Fun is the main priority! This activity is organized by volunteers from CJV and the volunteers from NL Cares offer extra support. You do not need special qualifications to help, the organizers of the activity are available and they will explain what is on the program and where you can help. Everyone can participate in this activity and as with all our activities, you are not committed to anything.
CJV Feijenoord offers people a place where children can feel at home and develop themselves. During the activities the emphasis lies on having fun, developing talents and learning to collaborate. This makes people want to contribute to a society in which there is room and attention for everyone, regardless of culture, religious belief or financial situation.
CJV works with PBS, Positive Behavior Support. They focus on positive behavior and continue to stimulate this. This can be done by compliments, calling the positive behavior out and rewarding one another.
A large proportion of the children in this district come from families with a migration background. As a result, the children may have a (slight) language disadvantage. So make sure you speak calmly and clearly and adapt to the pace of the child. This pace might be higher than you expect, so adjust the pace to the level of the child.
