Projects recommended to aid Antillean problem youths
A government task is seeking for long-term projects to assist problem youths from the Netherlands Antilles to stay in school and get a job.2 September 2008
THE NETHERLANDS -- A government task force has called for the establishment of special long-term projects in six large cities to assist problem youths from the Netherlands Antilles.
Many young people of Antillean origin get into trouble with the police. The Dutch-Antillean advisory body says they should get individual training to ensure that they do not drop out of school and that they find work.
A total of 21,000 Antilleans who immigrated to the Netherlands after 1995 are living in Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague, Almere, Tilburg and Dordrecht.
It recommends that the six cities and the government each allocate EUR 9 million on an annual basis.
