KVJJ Amsterdam

KVJJ Amsterdam

The Small-scale Judicial Youth Facility Amsterdam (from now on “KVJJ Amsterdam”) was established in 2016 and is located in Amsterdam, the capital city of The Netherlands. It is one of the five small-scale youth facilities in The Netherlands. KVJJ Amsterdam is managed by the Custodial Institutions Agency of The Netherlands in collaboration with a Dutch organisation named Levvel.

about

KVJJ’s are based on three principles. First, they want to maintain the positive elements of the young person’s life during their stay in the facility. For this reason, young people are placed close to their living environment in order to maintain contact with their family, friends and network. In addition, they want to appeal to the young person’s own responsibility. In this way they can work on their own plan for the future. Finally, chain cooperation is central to a KVJJ. Thus, assistance already started continues in the KVJJ or assistance is started in the KVJJ’s environment. The municipality is also closely involved in the deployment of youth aid, day care and the follow-up process.

Visited during the wish-eu project

Small-scale, differentiated and community-integrated facilities can be found in many European countries. There is not one, but a thousand detention houses. As part of the two-year WISH-EU Project, Prison Insider developed an interactive map that visualizes a database of detention facilities from various European regions. Throughout this European-funded project, we identified and visited over 40 good practices that apply one or more of the following principles: small-scale, differentiation and community-integration. Since then, RESCALED has continued to identify and visit practices whose stories can inspire us to drive systemic change. We have further developed the map to include various filters and detailed reports so you can get to know these inspirational practices!
