Netherlands Youth Institute


A favourable youth for every child. That’s the aim of the Netherlands Youth Institute. The Netherlands Youth Institute owns and shares knowledge on what works to boost and to hinder a favourable childhood. 

We want all children to have the opportunity to develop to their full potential and to become resilient, active and independent adults. That’s our ambition, that’s what we aim for.

Dutch Youth Policy

Dutch children are among the happiest and healthiest in the world, according to much international research. Still, a large number of children and young people need extra support and care during their upbringing.

In 2015, the Dutch municipalities have been made responsible for the whole continuum of welfare, support and care for all citizens, including children, young people and families in need of help. This is a major opportunity for transforming policies and services towards integrated approaches.
