Change Factory - Norway

The Change Factory is an idealistic foundation which presents knowledge and experience from children and young people through lectures, advice and courses.

Its goal is that youngsters participate in deciding the help they should receive at both social and individual levels.

The Kavli Trust is supporting “From Gap to Gold”, the foundation’s pilot project. Participants call themselves “pros” because they take a professional approach to child welfare, mental health and education.

Ten to 15 young people aged 15-30 who have failed to get an education at primary and secondary school for various reasons will attend an “express” school.

They will receive catch-up lessons with well-qualified teachers in small project groups, which close the gaps in their earlier schooling.
