What is it about?

During four half-days a week, "reStart" provides 15 to 19 year old NEETs - Not in Education, Employment or Training – with a structure tailored to their worldview: for some pocket money, no more than eight of them, guided by social workers, transform trash or design new product lines. Demand exceeds supply. And soon there will be cooperation with firms so that their employees will get to know the world of NEETs youths and vice versa.
