It's important that someone believes in them
Probation worker Supervision and Interventions Stella Piazzoli:
'I mainly work with young adults and notice that this target group is often out of control. This is partly due to the lack of day care. If you have nothing to do and you have no income, you hang around and mess around. Many boys lack perseverance and a sense of responsibility. And the processing of setbacks is also a point for attention. That is hard to learn. Of course we are working hard on this during the probation service. We do this through conversations and training. Project Turn-Over is a good addition to that. It is literally falling and rising again. Get a beech and continue again. Things like having breakfast together at the table, that is already a challenge for many boys and they like to take it on at Turn-Over. Young people learn basic skills there that you just have to have in order to be able to work in society.
Many reintegration projects are all about learning a trade. At Turn-Over, it's all about the basics. Perfect to start with. It is important for these boys that someone believes in them and that effort is made for them. At Turn-Over you will not be judged by what you have done. It is really looking ahead. I also hear that from our project participants. Joeri in particular plays an important role in this. The project has proved successful so far, so we look forward to the future. "
