We offer Language Groups for Dutch and English as an additional space to practice and communicate. These classes are not sufficient for the Inburgering procedure but are there to help out with questions and practice in a safe and welcoming environment. The Dutch and English Language Groups meet a few times a week and are divided into Basic and Intermediate level. Are you just starting to learn? That’s okay!
To join in the classes, find the groups on Facebook or send us your number and we will add you to the Whatsapp group:
If you don’t want to take part in the classes but still want to practice your Dutch or English, you can come to the weekly Language Cafes. Come to the InnBetween at the Capucijnenstraat 122, for some coffee and tea to talk with locals, students and other refugees in Dutch or English and practice your skills!

We also offer opportunities to do sports! The Sports team organises football, women’s volleyball, hikes and other fun activities for you. Find the events on our Facebook Page, or look for flyers in the AZCs and come to the events to have fun and work out!
The Refugee Project Maastricht also organises a lot of big Social Events and outings. Every second Tuesday, we organise a Women’s Crafts Afternoon at the AZC in Malberg where you can come, with your children or without, and have delicious coffee or tea and embroider, knit or use your imagination and creativity to make something pretty! Every month, we organise one or two big events at the InnBetween, where you can come and have fun, these events you can find on our Facebook page. We also go to the theatre, to movies or concerts together – if you want to join in, send us a message on Facebook, send us an email, or tell one of our volunteers.
We also have a Buddy Programme – our Connect! Project. In this project you get matched up with a local or a student based on your similar interests. We have fitness groups, language buddies and women’s group where you can meet up, make friends and build lasting relationships!
We hope to see you soon!

RPM believes that having friends in a new place makes all the difference to feel at home. Our goal is to encourage and support people in building lasting, meaningful connections. Thus, the Connect team sets up buddies or groups consisting of refugees, students and Maastricht locals based on their common interests. From this point onwards, buddies are encouraged to further attend events or classes organized by the other teams regularly.
As the head of the Connect Team, your task is to bridge between the RPM board and the team of motivated volunteers & buddies that make up Connect. You will have to attend board meetings on a bi-weekly basis and schedule meetings with your own team regularly. Most importantly, you will take the organization of the buddy projects into your hands, and implement new ideas into it. This brings with it a lot of responsibilities, but also a high degree of freedom. It is a highly autonomous work and hence a lot of dedication is necessary.
At the start you will be guided by the old team head in a transition period, to introduce you and make things easier for you. If you want to apply or in case you have any further questions, please write an email to email@example.com
