I love DUO. A team that is both professional and honest. I love the attitude and energy. It can simply make life better!
Yasser, 25 years old
DUO is just the programme I needed. It enabled me to go further in my search efforts towards employment. I gained experience. I regret that I did not hear about this programme much sooner but I am very proud of all I have learned from it
Francine, 30 years old
I have learned so much. Thanks to DUO, I have regained confidence in myself. I had run out of ideas. I was lost and now I have found myself

Be between 18 and 33 years old
Have a non-EU nationality OR be Dutch with an immigration background (you must have at least one parent or grandparent born outside of the EU)
Have a valid residence permit (temporary residence permits < 6 months are not taken into account)
Our mentoring programme is aimed at young people of foreign origin, i.e. all young people who have a foreign nationality from outside the European Union, but also all young people who are Dutch but who have a parent or grandparent who was born outside the EU.
Why is this? It is well acknowledged that having a foreign origin is a barrier to accessing the labour market, so our action aims to restore equal opportunities for all.
Having a mentor by your side really increases your chances on the job market. 7 out of 10 young people find a job, an internship or a training course thanks to their duo!
After attending an information session, you will meet with a coordinator from Duo for a Job who will take the time to assess your background, your expectations and your personality. Following this interview, you will be matched by Duo for a Job with the mentor who best suits you! Depending on your availability, you will meet your mentor for the first time and if you want to continue the adventure together, you will start your duo!
These steps usually take between 15 days and 1 month.
Think again! 25% of the young people we mentor have a higher education degree. In the job search, a degree is not everything. Your mentor can help you to better understand the codes of the sector, share his or her experience with you, help you build a network, etc.
Of course! Each duo starts with an inventory to be made together: who you are, what you like to do, what your skills are, what your priorities are, etc. All this information will allow you to better define the path you want to take.
No, you don’t need to have any qualifications or professional experience before starting your duo.
