About us

Hi there!

We are a local group of dedicated teachers and ambassadors from Groningen. We help refugees and minorities get ready for a future as developer. Its our mission to help refugees and minorities get ready for a great future in the tech industry of Groningen. We envision a future of opportunity where every refugee can be of great value to the tech industry of Groningen.

Ok. But what does that mean?

We’ll that means we teach refugees and minorities the basic skills they need to become developers. Next to this we also believe its important to help them find their way in the tech industry of Groningen.

How do you guys do this?

Our awesome teachers have developed their own learning program. The aim of our program is to learn through experimenting and working. We have a practical approach and try to make the program as real as possible. This means that the Redevelop students work together on projects. An important advantage of this is that they immediately start building a showcase, and develop the soft skills that the need to work at local companies. They do this in the redevelop company. That works on ‘real’ projects from local tech companies. Like this we try to bring our students as close as possible to the reality. So they can already taste a little bit what it takes to be a developer.

Why do you guys do all of this?

We fiercely believe that refugees and minorities can be an important part of the solution to the shortage of developers on the labor market. Thus it’s our goal to be a bridge between the students and the labor market. Helping our students get ready for jobs and internships at local tech companies.

Student Applicatieontwikkelaar

Ik vind Redevelop een heel goeie en behulpzame organisatie, daar heb ik de basis van HTML en CSS geleerd en kon ik mijn eerste website maken. Het heeft mij ook geholpen om de juiste keuze voor een opleiding te maken en nu ben ik met mijn opleiding als applicatieontwikkelaar begonnen.
