Crown Prince Haakon did not spare the confetti when he opened the development program “Move” for youth in Drammen on Monday.
The Crown Prince Couple’s Foundation is behind the program Flyt, that will give young people tools to create a good life. At the first meeting on Monday, he participated in friendly bingo and took on “love-shades”.
Since 2011, the foundation has supported projects to engage and include youth in the community. Flyt is an offering to 10th grade youth, where they learn practical steps to better meet the challenges of everyday life.
Flyt (flow) is a well-known concept in psychology, and describes a situation in which you are motivated, satisfied and go completely into what you are doing. Our goal with Flyt is to help young people make good choices in the transition from secondary school to high school, says the foundation’s CEO Irene Lystrup.
The program was tested in the previous school year and will be introduced in three municipalities this fall. The goal is for the service to become nationwide. The program was developed in collaboration with Adults for Children, and is supported by the Sparebankstiftelsen DNB, the Stiftelsen Dam, Wilstar and the Egmont Foundation.
