Youth and safety

Our present day society demands various skills and competences from young people. They should finish their education in order to find a job. Furthermore, they should lead healthy lives and develop a vast array of social competences. Schools and other (governmental) organizations aim to contribute to these developments. PLATO supports organizations and professionals who are dealing with matters of youth, prevention and social safety.
