Portefeuille YouthCommissie Sociaal Domein & Wonen
The broad portfolio of Youth is largely about education and youth care. STIP believes it is important that youth care is easily accessible and that we ensure that children with problems are helped as early as possible. In this way, we can prevent serious care as much as possible. Furthermore, we want an accessible and permanent consultation hour where young people can always go for advice on debts, bullying, diseases, sexual abuse or to get an anonymous pregnancy or STD test. In addition, information is provided at schools on the responsible use of drugs and alcohol, dealing with money, sexting and sexual orientation. As for education, the best way out of poverty is to find a job. STIP's goal is for every young person to leave school with a diploma that allows them to enter the labour market.
