Learning the non-formal way

At The Youth Company, we love trying out new things and setting up new goals and programmes. One of those goals was to start up TYC local in The Netherlands. We are eager to share our knowledge gained in an international education environment locally. From today on you can invite us in your classroom, in your (youth) organisation, and in your company.

Similar to our international programmes, we offer non-formal learning opportunities to young people and we closely collaborate with them. We are also more than happy to share our knowledge with youth workers, educators, and enthusiasts. Basically with everybody who is interested in learning in a non-formal way. Whether it would be for your personal development or to learn as a professional how to involve non-formal education with your students or colleagues… everybody is more than welcome to jump aboard.

Human Rights in the classroom

Human rights education is essential in the curriculum of any human being.

The Youth Company offers a variety of educational programmes – Stay Human – that can be designed to support students to create a critical understanding of human rights and responsibilities. The programmes are designed to activate participants to take a stand for their own rights and the rights of others.

Each Stay Human programme is custom made, based on the needs and learning goals of your pupils and students.

Human Rights in your community

We offer support with setting up local human rights activities, that address challenges that young people face at a local level. Are you a local youth or civil society organisation, a political body, a grassroots organisation, a company active to give shape to their corporate social responsibility… we would be glad to help you organising a Stay Human activity in your community.

Each Stay Human activity is custom made and based on the needs and challenges identified.

Keeping Democracy Alive in your classroom

Keeping Democracy Alive is your answer if you are eager to implement citizenship education programmes that show young people that they have the power to make a change in “democratic life”. The programme strengthens the awareness that participation is a right for every young person and that it can actually be fun to make yourself heard.

Each programme is custom made, based on the needs and learning goals of your pupils and students.
