Een jaarlijkse FICE Masterclass dichtbij huis!
In 2019 startte FICE Nederland met het organiseren van FICE Masterclasses.
Doel: internationale experts uitnodigen in Nederland om leden van FICE NL op een laagdrempelige manier (in eigen land) de kans te geven kennis uit het buitenland te vergaren en inspiratie op te doen.
FICE NL organiseert op 17 mei 2022 in samenwerking met de Zuid Afrikaanse FICE partner NACCW en het Keniaanse "My Drive in Life team" een online masterclass rondom de thema’s community based care en ervaringsdeskundigheid.

My Drive in Life is a program that inspires people of various backgrounds, ages, countries and cultures to know more about themselves and what they can learn from life experiences. In the program, participants explore their identity and increase self-awareness and get to discover how their mindset works. My Drive in Life creates a safe space to turn life experiences into life lessons. This is achieved through interactive (online) sessions by trainers who are highly skilled and professional.
