Young in Prison (YiP) celebrates its 15th anniversary in Amsterdam
Young in Prison, YiP for short, is an international foundation that enables children and young people in conflict with the law to contribute positively to society through creative and sports development programmes, in prison and after release. Since 2002 YiP has been working with young prisoners, leading to the development of the COPOSO method: Contributing Positively to Society. COPOSO is based on the values of positivity, creativity, equality, inspiration, transparancy and honesty. YiP works on a personal level with young people and provides high energy workshops.
Young in Prison created a program in order to celebrate it’s 15th anniversary on October the 7th at Paradiso Noord in Amsterdam. This day starts with the annual YiPArt photo auction at 16:00 and ends with a party, with loads of (live) music until 03:00.
