Abstract

This article examines the possibility of motivating unemployed young people for training schemes whose instrumental pay-off is-at least in the Netherlands-mostly small or very uncertain. Using data from three research projects, it is argued that it is very difficult to motivate youngsters to join training schemes because these schemes do not provide 'normal' work. Thus they do not allow young people to realise the life plan they have in mind. Precisely because these life plans are an integral part of a cultural habitus, they are self-evident and for that reason difficult to change. The only way to make training schemes attractive is to make them offer the participants a training for a 'real' profession and, after that training, guarantee them work in that profession.
