@ease Volta

PLEASE NOTE: THIS VENUE IS STILL CLOSED (@ease Volta).


@ease Volta is located in the Volta building in the ‘Spaarndammer’ neighborhood, opposite to the entrance to the Westerpark. Volta is a stage and music school for young people. It’s connected to Dock, an organization that, among other things, works for young people in the neighborhood.

When you enter the Volta building, you first enter the central waiting area. Sometimes children, young people or parents are waiting here for their music lessons. You can go straight to the left. You then enter the large stage hall. This is the @ease waiting area. The volunteers will pick you up there. Together with two volunteers you go upstairs to the @ease area where you can speak privately in a relaxing atmosphere.


Questionnaire

When the conversation is finished, the volunteers will ask you to complete a questionnaire on an iPad. This can be done anonymously. The answers are used for research. For example, we would like to know how you found @ease and how you rate the conversation. Your opinion is important to us. You can help us improve @ease. If you would rather not cooperate, that is no problem.

Need immediate help?

Do you think of suicide and do you need immediate help?



Many young people find it difficult to talk about suicide. But we know that talking about suicidal thoughts can be very helpful. It helps to eliminate loneliness and tension. You become calmer. The other can help you to organize your thoughts. And will try to find a solution together with you.
