During research on how young students are motivated, she discovered that most youngsters lose their motivation when they have an unclear view of their professional future. This is especially the case within poor neighbourhoods. Terwijn came with an effective solution for this problem. Passionate professionals voluntarily teach the youngsters on Sundays about their profession. The purpose of IMC Weekend School is to educate and inspire youngsters so they have a solid base to make the right choices regarding their future education and professional career.
