Two decades of commitment to young people

The Exit Foundation firmly believe that every young person has potential and in the equal opportunities to develop that potential. That is why we believe that it is unfair that issues such as their postcode or the place where they are born should limit their future. 


We work to reduce the number of youth at-risk early school dropout. We provide every young person with the tools they require in order to activate their hidden potential, so that they can build their own future today. If young people are lost, our society and our future are lost.

Our programmes

We try to reduce the numbers of early school dropout by youth at-risk by offering support and tools so that each young person can discover and enhance their hidden motivations and abilities. 


Through experiential modules and together with companies, we work on a model the connecting the individual skills of each young person with the specific needs of the environment and work scenario, in order to optimize their performance, enhance their skills and find more opportunities.
