The silent force.

Lammert Rider. Qualified Pedagogical Employee Youth Care. Rugby fanatic. Trainer of the first and second of CasRC. And trainer and pedagogical staff member of Turn-Over. His goal? Supporting as many young people as possible and giving them a good push to help them regain their place in society.
 
Lammert: 'You become champion if your board is strong. With a solid foundation you can make steps. The same applies to Turn-Over. The results we book come from our strong organization. The right people in the right place. We can switch quickly, that's really the power of Turn-Over. " Three days a week the participants come to the club where they receive physical and mental training. Two days a week they train under the guidance of Lammert. 'I am also often involved in cognitive training. The combination of physical and mental challenges ensures that something really happens to the boys. In the first month, we are mainly building the physical training courses. The tension of participation and the real desire to change something in life also works on the muscles. Doing things together, learning to trust each other, the physical contact that comes with rugby, falling and getting up, it's all getting used to. Our objective is that participants have a work experience placement after three months and then keep this job. Aftercare is therefore very important. '
 
Day distribution
'What a Turn-Over Day looks like? Of course, not all days are the same, but I will give an example. Patrick, our driver, picks up the participants. We had breakfast together and then had a group discussion. Then we go into the gym for strength training, followed by the outdoor training. After lunch it is time for cognitive training and we end the day with a final outdoor training.
 
Aftercare
After that, people continue to the second phase. The work experience phase. In this phase, the group process falls away and they have to dig up for themselves. Then new things start to play. Getting late is not that bad after all? It is our job to point young people to this type of business and involve the employer. That is why our return days are so important. The young people come back one day a week for a training and group discussion. The boys who work a lot do not always manage, so we sometimes visit the young people in their workplace and have a lot of telephone contact. '

   

The art of trainership
'You have to stick to the red thread. In my opinion, that is really the art of training. With these young people the times agreed with each other are sacred, we do not deviate from that. Even if a participant does not feel like it. Of course, the red thread does not mean that we can not switch. When the boys do not physically take a training session, there are several alternatives to consider, where we also do not leave the mental side untouched. After the first three months, participants have an improved condition and are open to new ideas. I put my hands in the fire. Of course you do not create a completely different person in three months, but our boys get absolutely more insight and behave differently. The reintegration and aftercare will do the rest. '

Business club
'Turn-Over is actually a small business club for youth care. We bring together employers, municipalities, the UWV and other agencies. It ensures short lines. If you stand alongside the training field, a consultation is done. Employers also get more understanding for this target group and want to do a lot for our young people. It is a win-win situation. '

We work together with pride
