Write a CV and follow interview training. Meet other women and take time to process your past. Come to Second Step!

We allow you to gain work experience in sales and catering, thus allowing helping you to develop your talents.

You can also follow the workshop programme, which includes various themes like developing identity and self-confidence, writing a CV, working in a team, being assertive, money management and developing creative skills. If necessary, you can also improve your Dutch language skills. We can also support you finding (volunteer) work.

The working day at Second Step starts at 10 o’clock and ends at 16:30 o’clock. Most women decide to take part one day a week. Second Step is run by a social worker and trained volunteers. All sales revenues are used for our projects.
