    World Autism Day

    Brunel opens the stock exchange on behalf of the Dutch Autism Association (NVA) on World Autism Day. Femke Dijkstra, one of the founders of the Brunel Foundation, sounds the gong.

    World Autism Day

    World Autism Day coincides with the NVA Autism Week 2019. This year, the theme of the Autism Week 2019 is ‘Autism Works’ and the NVA hopes to bridge the gap between employers and people with autism. More than 55 percent of people with autism are unemployed but could be a valuable addition to the work floor. The NVA find this incompatible with the scarcity on the labor market, where there are tens of thousands of unfilled vacancies.

    The NVA will also award the Autism Kindness Award on World Autism Day to one individual and one organization committed to enabling the participation of people with Autism.

    Brunel

    As an employment service provider, Brunel supports this initiative and collaborates with NVA on the WorkWeb-Autism project. This online tool helps people with Autism find suitable employment opportunities. This is just one of the initiatives by the NVA that fits Brunel’s mission: ‘to help create a better future for professionals and a better planet for future professionals’.

    Mandeville Academy

    Mandeville Academy Gouda started in 2018 as a school for gifted young people, aged between 16 and 25. Mandeville Academy offers a group of ambitious gifted young adults the opportunity to get acquainted with a wide spectrum of scientific disciplines and social issues at the highest level.

    Club Cent Cinquante Plus

    CCCP is Mandeville's initiative for the youngest, most brilliant children in the Netherlands. This group of children is so smart that at the age of 8-11 they have completed their high school education. They are now too young for the university and even a university-education does not always fit.

    For this group it is important that they function "normally" as long as possible. A necessary requirement is that they are challenged enough, intellectually.

    For this group of children, Mandeville organizes monthly excursions with lectures, to interesting places in society and business.
