Traineeship (non-)technical graduated students
Gen25 offers a talent development program for (non-)technical graduated students who want to jumpstart their career in IT. Launched in 2021 as ‘Academy25’ the successful traineeship is already up for its second batch of career seekers. Additionally we hire people via Make IT work who want to change their career towards the digital industry which Gen25 is a part of.
Laptops 4 Charity
Gen25 supported two initiatives that provide laptops to children of families that cannot afford one. Our fortunate position makes us aware of how technology transforms businesses, careers, and lives every day. Therefore, we collected laptops among employees in our network and donated funds to Project Edu PC.
Jeugdfonds Sport & Cultuur and BurgessSports
With our offices in Amsterdam and London we look at ways to support our community. There are households in the Netherlands and the United Kingdom that struggle to make ends meet and let their children play sports. Gen25 finds it vital that they can! That is why at Christmas 2023 we have chosen donate to the Jeugd Fons Sport & Cultuur and Burgess Sport. The charities pay for the memberships if parents can not afford it.
Support for Ukraine
Gen25 supported an NGO that had scheduling challenges when they hired a hotel to accommodate Ukrainian refugees. We’ve provided them with the requested booking solution - GoMeddo - and they’ve received the licenses free of charge.

Volunteer solution free of charge
