Yvan Bayisabe & Fredrik Mosis
VIBRO is an organization for and by youth, which focuses on engaging and empowering youth, and to encourage youth to actively participate in society.
Thirty percent of Norwegian students currently do not complete secondary education, which heavily reduces their chances of entering the labor market and weakens their belief in their own future. This problem is especially pressing among boys with a multicultural background.
Yvan and Fredrik´s solution is to create an organization for youths, by youths. Through VIBRO, they have been providing project work to youths to confront this societal challenge. In addition, VIBRO mentors youths internally in the organization and has arranged concerts, exhibitions, debates, and lectures for them. During 2015, Yvan and Fredrik explored ways to become less dependent on grants, and they identified an interesting opportunity: to partner with companies that are both interested in improving their workplace diversity and in need of interns. To help these companies find the perfect candidate, VIBRO charges for the recruiting and screening, and if the recommended candidate is offered a position, it is awarded an additional fee.
