Last month the Homework Hub was publicly launched via Zoom. Together with all 8 partners in the Homework Hub; respectively StudieHub, Passie voor je Toekomst, Stichting SPE, Stichting IMC Weekendschool, Move, Fawaka Ondernemersschool, Weekend Academie, and Life Skills – a wonderful programme was hosted by Alfie Martis in which participants from the UvA community could ask questions and get to know these partners who offer diversity-related community projects and internships to all UvA students.
The CDO team wants to express its gratitude to all students and staff members who were in attendance and contributed to the launch. We want to especially thank all partners for their trust and commitment, Geert ten Dam for opening the launch and the two students, Stacy and Anita, who shared their experiences in finding an internship or community project through the Homework Hub. Through the Homework Hub the CDO team continues to form sustainable partnerships with community-based organisations that work on making a social impact in the city, closing the education gap and making space for students of colour in academia.
