Become a Client for the SDG Traineeship

Does your organisation need a boost in making impact on the Sustainable Development Goals?

During the SDG Traineeship, young people are given the opportunity to develop themselves as true SDG Professionals and to make a concrete contribution to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals in the public and private sector.

SDG Trainees work 1 day a week in a team on a project for 15 weeks to make an impact in a field within the SDGs. The SDG-related project that they work on will be designed by the clients themselves.

Naturally, trainees receive the right tools, knowledge, and guidance from us to call themselves true SDG Professionals. SDG Trainees become part of the solution and develop skills and knowledge to ensure that they know how to make an impact as future professionals.

What does the SDG Traineeship entail?

The SDG Traineeship is a 15-week part-time programme in which a team of motivated trainees (HBO/WO; 18-27 jaar) works one day a week (8 hours) on a concrete SDG project for a client.

What's in it for the clients?

  • An opportunity to accelerate the implementation of the SDGs within your organization and lead the transformation towards a sustainable public and business sector.
  • Your organization comes up with the project and goals itself.
  • Little time spent on supervision, our sustainability consultants supervise the trainees intensively!
  • A multidisciplinary team with young talents coming together to help your organisation integrate a social and sustainable practices into a policy strategy or business model.
  • Participation in the SDG Talks: Inspiring sessions from practitioners on SDGs and future-proof operations.
  • Inspiration; employees are challenged to think differently.
  • Visibility; positive exposure to potential employees and other organizations. We ensure visibility on our social media channels and at the closing event.
