IMC Weekendschool sounds the gong at Euronext for their 20th anniversary

The IMC weekend school Foundation has been providing additional education for young people between the ages of ten and fourteen years old, from neighbourhoods where this is most needed.

Since the start in Amsterdam Zuidoost, the weekend school has grown immensely; covering  ten branches in the big cities and with an alumni network of 2600 former pupils. They already offer their education during school hours, at twenty regular primary schools across the Netherlands (IMC Basis) and at eight locations for newcomers children in international language classes (IMC on Tour). Year to date, they reach 2400 pupils from 38 different locations on a weekly basis. Their initial concept is still at heart: stimulating the curiosity of young individuals by introducing them to enthusiastic professionals who will introduce them to their business.

Success should be celebrated. And that's what they will do at the jubilee party in the Amsterdam Westerkerk on October 13 on the occasion of which they open trading at the Amsterdam Stock Exchange on 11 October.
