Overview: Project Exit was formally established in 1997, originating as a three-year development project by the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of Children and Family, and the Directorate of Immigration. It was hosted by the NGO ‘Adults for Children’. The project had three primary objectives:
- to establish local networks to support the parents of children embedded in racist or violent groups;
- to enable young people to disengage from these groups;
- and to develop and disseminate methodological knowledge to professionals working with youths associated with violent groups.
