KOMPASS & CO
Kompass & Co provide vocational training and give access to work experience for youth who have dropped out of school. Kompass & Co's increase the youth's self-esteem and their belief in their own capabilities.
In Norway, children from dysfunctional families often do not have the necessary life skills to function in everyday life nor do they have access to gain them. Also, the Norwegian welfare system has not yet grasped the depth of the challenges these traumatized youths experience, and it currently lacks the tools to meet their psychosocial needs. As a result, this leads to marginalization, low self-esteem, and higher dropout rates among affected youths.
Kompass & Co offers work experience for youths, with jobs in food, redesign, and urban cultivation. Through these kinds of work they gain experiences and knowledge in life skills they need as well as leadership development and knowledge about environmentally-friendly products.
