What is Boost Arnhem?

We started with the goal to welcome refugees in Arnhem. To give them a usefull existence and to work on making Arnhem more beautiful with these new people. In the meanwhile a lot of the new comers live in Arnhem and life has a more sustained base. However, it is not easy to assimilate and participate in a fast European community. We would like to help with that.

Everyone is welcome

Various activities are organised in Arnhem for the ‘new Arnhemmers”. These activities are organised by Boost Arnhem, but also by Rozet, the volunteercenter, Bazaar 54 and the integration house. On this website we will try as much as possible to mention all these beautiful initiatives within their correct time. If you have a nice activity for new Arnhemmers, then you can send an email to Boost Arnhem.
