Brake Out jouw toekomst

Highschool is over. And now?

  • Are you in between the ages of 18 and 30 years?
  • Do you have a mental disability, ASD or ABI?
  • Do you feel like living an adult life with spunk?

Then Brake-Out might be the perfect programme for you! SPED is over and you are ready for an adult life. But you do not know what exactly it is you want the next few years. Or how to make your dreams come true. At Brake-Out you will discover this together with other young adults! We start looking for your talents and start building your plan for the future.

For 18 years, I was convinced I could barely do anything. Brake-Out has made me more independent. I now know what I am good at and what I love doing.

3 years, 2 days a week

As a student, you will participate in the activities of Brake-Out 2 days a week. Together with 8 other young adults, you will gain a lot of new experiences. You will be given the chance to try out new things: volunteer work, creating new projects... One day a week we head out. The other day we stay at the course location. The learning programme consists of different modules, which revolve around life themes such as housing, relationships, leisure and work.

After 3 years

  • ... you will have an appealing perspective for the future.
  • ... you will be strong and resilient.
  • ... you will be surrounded by a network that believes in you.
