About Youth for Christ Netherlands

Youth for Christ Netherlands offers relational youth work with about one hundred paid employees and more than two hundred volunteers. We build relationships with young people and are there for them. Through our words and actions we show the love of Jesus.

Youth for Christ NL is active in youth work in more than twenty locations in the Netherlands. We visit young people with our Mobiele OntmoetingsPlek (Mobile meeting places), play a game of football with them on squares and organize craft afternoons for the girls from primary school. We offer homework guidance and practical, one-on-one support where necessary. We coach young adults on their way to adulthood.

All in all, we provide a safe place where young people can chill, chat and drink a cup of tea. We do not shy away from a conversation about life and let them know that they are valuable and loved.

In addition to working on the street and in youth centers, Youth for Christ Netherlands is active in churches. About two hundred youth leaders from all over the country use our Rock Solid, Stay Solid and Solid Friends club programs. The Youth Alpha is also being used by an increasing number of churches and youth centers as a means of evangelizing and having faith conversations with young people. Our employees equip the youth leaders for their work by means of training courses. In addition, we work together with churches for individual activities and events.

Youth for Christ Netherlands is growing and has a loyal following: every year we reach more young people with our youth work and with the gospel. In 2022 we reached about 15,000 young people!
