“In September 2018 I started my internship Social work at James house. I was placed within the BEST team at Sentinel primary school. The first month was very difficult for me it was the first time far away from homeworking in the new culture, getting to know my colleagues and the organisation. My colleagues were very kind, open and helpful therefore it made it easy for me to open and gain more confidence. James house gave me an opportunity to take initiatives and responsibilities in different interventions which happens within the BEST program. This helped to grow in a professional way. James house inspired me in the way they work with each other and with their clients. After 10 months I go back to The Netherlands knowing that I had an amazing experience with James house and that I am on the level that my university is asking for to graduate. Thank you, James house for the opportunity…” – VERENA MOL “What did you do to my boy? I simply can’t recognize him from who he was. Please don’t stop the programme!”, the mother of one of the BEST Boys urges. Sometimes you feel as if you witness a miracle, tells Frits Strietman. That explains the need for a BEST Boys workshop!
