Voluntary work as training ground for the labor market

Project period 2013 - 2015
Project employer Norges Røde Kors med midler fra Nav
Project nr. 414061

Red Cross Norway, has initiated various voluntary activities the purpose of which is to help immigrant women and disabled persons to acquire qualifications and experiences which may help them enter the ordinary labour market.  One of these activities is a small café located in a center for immigrant women organized by Red Cross, Oslo. In this café women work voluntary some hours each work and learn about the operation of a café. Another activity is a mentor system where selected immigrant women are coached through one year by experienced female managers. A third activity is an arrangement at Red Cross, Tromsø, where disabled persons work voluntary in the Red Cross organization, but financed by NAV. 

In the research project these activities are followed through two years and their effects are discussed.
