Announcement of Management Change at Young in Prison
12 April 2021
We would like to inform you that the management team of YiP is changing. Raoul Nolen and Jaap van der Spek have decided, after many years of committing and contributing to the mission YiP, to transfer their directorship.
Raoul has been involved in the international organization since the very early years of YiP. Over the past six years, Jaap has led the growth and professionalization of YiP in Juvenile Justice Institutions and Closed Youth Care Facilities in the Netherlands.
YiP is in full swing and growing rapidly, both in the Netherlands and internationally. We are grateful for Jaap and Raoul and for how their knowledge, energy and creativity have made YiP what it has become today. Over the past 19 years, YiP has grown from a small initiative to a professional organization that reaches more and more young people in the Netherlands and internationally in contact with the law through art and sports.
In the coming period, the board will search for a new director together with the team. Until then, they have found Esther Overweter willing to join YiP as ad interim director.
