The Youth Task Force

Augeo established the Child Abuse Youth Task Force (Jongerentaskforce Kindermishandeling) in 2013. The task force is an independent organisation that provides a platform for children and young adults to join in the discussion about effective ways of tackling child abuse. The Youth Task Force comprises 13 members aged between 14 and 25. All of the members have some connection with the issue of child abuse. They have either been victims of abuse themselves, or have come into contact with the issue at school or in their circle of friends. Some of the members are studying for a profession that will bring them into professional contact with children or parents and have learned about child abuse in this way. Augeo supports the work of the Youth Task Force, which also works with representatives from other initiatives and platforms for young people in the youth welfare sector.
