Aims & objectives

The training deals with vital questions, such as: what do I want to do with my life? How do I cope with events? How do I build up good relationships, both in private life and in work situations? How do collaboration, self-confidence, parenthood, love, self-expression and other aspects that determine my personal growth make up the framework of my life?

Training first of all focuses on actually experiencing one’s own way of doing things.
The next step is to explore alternative possibilities to function in society in a satisfying way.


The Olde Vechte Foundation is organizing this training out of its vision to create a world that works for every one out of love, care and cooperation. Offering a possibility to involve your vision as well.

Target group & international/intercultural composition of the group & team

Target group: for all people from all countries in the age between 17-80, able to work in simple English, willing to actively participate during the whole training.

Training methods used & main activities

The International Synergy Group trains individuals to function better in society. In the Synergy training, participants work on their personal development (relationships, parenthood, balance in life, etc.). We work with learning methods that follow the natural human behaviour, which work in the same way like learning to walk, taste, feel. We call it learning by experience.

Outcomes of the activity

The training empowers the participants to become aware of what they want and enable them to create the life that they want. In this training they have the opportunity to discover more about themselves, what they are already capable of doing, their power, their full potential. The training supports their own strength while dealing with different circumstances. In this training they also have the opportunity to practice trainer’s skills in order to work with the processes and the method of the Synergy group.
