Stichting Alexander is a non-profit Dutch research and advice bureau on youth participation that implements projects for those already working with or interested to work with youth participation. Since 1993, Stichting Alexander has been active in the area of participatory youth research and has set up training and coaching programs for young people and professionals that draw on a variety of participatory methods. We work for a wide range of clients from different social sectors such as welfare, care, health, education, employment, and arts & culture.Young people are at the core of our work. They participate in all stages of our projects, as co-researcher, co-trainer, advisor, and as interpreter of the results. They themselves take the lead in advocating for their recommendations and implementing improvements in dialogue with adults. With our projects we realise long-lasting results.
