We help young people to join the labour market
At NN, we want to show young people what the business world is really like before they have finished their studies. We also help a limited group of young people to obtain the diploma of their dreams.
Vlajo Innovation Camp
Vlajo stands for "Vlaamse Jonge Ondernemingen" – "Young Flemish Companies" – and is an organisation that builds bridges between education and the world of work. At a Vlajo Innovation Camp, teams of university students and pupils in third-level secondary education come together to take part in brainstorming sessions. The teams are assigned a particular problem, for which they need to devise an innovative solution. They receive advice from experts while they work, before finally drafting a business plan and presenting their ideas to a panel.
NN is an active partner in this initiative, and we ask young people to think about future needs in the insurance industry. In this way, they learn what is involved in developing a new product. If they come up with any interesting ideas then NN can get to work on them straight away.

NN Future Matters Scholarship Programme
The NN Future Matters Scholarship Programme provides disadvantaged students with a grant that allows them to study for a master's degree in finance, risk or economics in the Netherlands. The students are assigned an NN mentor who mentors them through the entire year of their course, and they can also take part in a number of workshops organised by NN.
One of the selected participants in this project is Maria, who is studying for a Master's in Economics at the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam.
