Overview

While ALFI members show a growing interest and have had constructive contributions to the Jonk Entrepreneuren educational programmes in Luxembourgish schools, we are pleased to continue the series of informative sessions in search of passionate volunteers.

166 members registered last year to attend the two introductory workshops organised in partnership with JEL, 75 of our industry fellows filled in an enrolling form and 30 of them made an intervention with a high school/school or got involved as a coach.

On 11 December 2019, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., we invite you again to a workshop to find out how you can get involved this year as some of JEL’s programmes opened to English-speaking professionals and cover a wider geographic area of the country.

This event is reserved to ALFI members.
