Kingdom Conference Youth Development

November 2016

Commissioned by Cooperating Funding Agencies Caribbean and the Curaçao government, a kingdom conference was organized with 100 participants from the government and the youth field, with positive youth development as the central theme.

The conference ‘More opportunities for young people with integral youth policy’ was the first conference organized by the Cooperating Funding Agencies Caribbean (Oranje Fonds, Kansfonds and Kinderpostzegels Nederland) together with the Curacao government. The opening by the Prime Minister of Curaçao was followed by a video message from the patroness of the Oranje Fonds Queen Máxima. The program consisted of exchanging experiences between the islands about integrated youth policy, working visits to youth organizations and workshops on tackling school drop-outs, work-study trajectories for young people, diagnosing youth problems, volunteerism and measuring results.
