What is mentor-program KANS 050?

KANS 050 is a dynamic mentoring program for young people who would like to achieve more by gaining insights and knowledge in their area(s) of interest as well as building their confidence and learning important life skills. 

What can you gain from meeting with a mentor?

Over  500 young people from Groningen city and the province of Groningen have already benefitted from a mentor through the KANS 050 program.  With the help of a mentor they have learned how to plan schoolwork, found a fitting internship, made important choices, graduated, met new people, improved contact with their parents, overcame financial problems and have achieved a more hopeful view on their lives. They are now more confident than before.

Who are the mentors?

At KANS 050 we have over 150 trained mentors to choose from.  Mentors are men or women at least 21 years of age with a wide range of education, careers, hobbies and interests and are ready to share their experiences to help young people achieve their goals.  In addition to being trained, the mentors will have regular contact with the mentee, from 6 months to a year.  At KANS 050 we think it’s important that young people get along with their mentor and look for a mentor that matches their personality.

Background information

KANS 050 has been named Master in Mentoring by the Oranje Fonds ( and was founded by Alfa-college, CMO Groningen, Noorderpoort and  MJD.  They try to work together with other organizations, like schools, youth work and municipalities to help ensure success for every participant – both the mentor and the mentee.

KANS 050 receives funds from Oranje Fonds, the province of Groningen, the municipality Groningen, Voortijdig Schoolverlaten (VSV), the Skanfonds, the Emmaplein Foundation and more.

  • KANS 050 has over 150 mentors. In order to find a mentor that matches your person, we ask you what you expect from the mentor and by what kind of person you would like to be supported. Think of things like age, man or woman, work- and educational background, hobbies and interests. We will discuss this with you when you come to meet us.
  • We will then look for a mentor for you. In the first conversation with the mentor you are the one to decide if he or she suits you. No? We will find another mentor. Yes? You can then discuss with the mentor how to go on from there. For example; where will we meet, how often, what will we talk about?
  • The first period you will meet up with your mentor once a week, later this can become less.
