Why we started this
Impacting the life of young people is the reason why, in the beginning, The Youth Company was established. Inclusion is an important value for us and we are eager to have an impact on the lives of ALL young people in the age category 14 – 35 years old, regardless of their gender identity, race, religion, sexuality, family background, the country they come from, educational level, socioeconomic status.
On an international level, we work with ALL young people from the European Continent in the age category 14-35 years old. We offer inclusive educational programmes that are accessible for all. On a local level, we work with ALL young people from the Province of Overijssel, The Netherlands, aged 14-35 years old. We are based in this province and provide an open space to meet.
We aim to be an organisation that doesn’t only offer learning experiences, but that also helps, supports, and invites other young people, schools, institutions, local politicians, to step in and join us in our work or vice versa. To establish that, we have developed 4 services.
