ADDRESSING YOUTH UNEMPLOYMENT IN ROTTERDAM.
HAND IN HAND!
WE TAKE ACTION. ARE YOU?
“Concreeto GO!” is an initiative to provide Rotterdam youth with better guidance and a better chance of finding a suitable place in the labor market. According to the Rotterdam Court of Audit, Rotterdam is falling short in tackling youth unemployment. This conclusion is drawn in the report – published in January 2019 ‘Work to do’. Only one in 10 unemployed young people in Rotterdam is guided to work or school by the municipality. That’s a shame, because there are so many opportunities in our beautiful port city! On this page, we tell you more about Concreeto GO!
A PUSH IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION
THE INITIATIVE: CONCREETO GO!
Sometimes it can be difficult to find a (new) job. Due to circumstances, not everyone manages to complete preliminary training or gain experience. Together with a job coach and other partners, we extend a helping hand to Rotterdam youth who need it. We actively guide a small group of participants (18 to +/- 35 years old) to find and keep a job. In addition to active guidance from a job coach, we offer them the opportunity to obtain certificates and a trial week of work with benefits.

BO VAN DER VOORT.
As a proud resident of Rotterdam, Bo knows the many faces of the city. Rotterdam is beautiful and Rotterdam is (sometimes) ugly. It is a metropolis, but also the city with the highest youth unemployment among the major cities in the Netherlands. ”Rotterdam is a city full of opportunities, but those opportunities still need to be seized. The Rotterdam business community must take action to get the youth who are now falling between the cracks into work and ready for a bright future.”
Sometimes it can be difficult to find a job. Martin understands that due to circumstances, not everyone is able to complete a pre-apprenticeship or gain experience. He believes it is important that the business community, together with the municipality, actively engage in helping Rotterdam’s young people toward a bright future. Martin: “Together we make Rotterdam more beautiful! Martin’s “why? Making sure every day together that Concreeto is right!
