Current research

PROVA-project, a follow-up research project in collaboration with Folkuniversitetet* (funding from Arvsfonden).

The project aims at, on the basis of public education, and in close collaboration with all stakeholders that young adults come in contact with, creating an alternative and optional rehabilitation path, tailored to the participant’s wants and needs, in order to move participants closer to work or study, and thus closer to making their own living.

Project managers at Folkuniversitetet* will make use of four activity areas: personal leadership and entrepreneurship, culture and creativity, competence and merit supplementation and health and lifestyle. The participant will then choose, in consultation with the project leaders, a mix of one or more of these areas, depending on needs and wishes.
