Prepare Yourself

The VELUX Foundations’ ‘Prepare Yourself’ project tests and develops initiatives in order to prevent social polarisation and mental vulnerability and problems among marginalised youth. Young people will be equipped with tools, which will enable them to take responsibility for their own well-being to a greater extent. The project will deal with empowerment, initiative, self-awareness and the realization of own qualities, boundaries and resources, all critical elements for enhancing opportunities and creating a better life. Participants will, among other things, be given guidance and assistance with respect to finding a place to live, applying for jobs, shopping for food and clothes as well as support in solving personal problems such as low self-esteem, anxiety, minor eating disorders, sorrow or family conflicts.
