Project for Undocumented students
There is a group of young people that experiences a revers life course. Whereas most young people work and grow towards independence, for these young people the exact opposite takes place. Most young children receive guidance during their younger years and gradually work towards more freedom. This group of young people received acknowledgement and support as a child, but the instant they turned 18 they lost all support and acknowledgement and became non-citizens. These are the ‘ondocumented’.
Led by lectorate member Ruben Boers several individuals, organizations and groups have expressed interest in contributing to this project. Some of which include: Susanna Menendez, Rene van Schoonhoven (educational law), Foundation Academy Amsterdam, Anne Frank Stichting, ROC Mondriaan, Universiteit Leiden, Hogeschool Gent.
