DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

1. WHY ARE WE HERE? Dream Learn Work’s mission is to give youth from less developed areas opportunities for a better future through education and employment. Started in 2006 In 2006, a group of Norwegian companies in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil came together to develop a social program. Their goal was to address a lack of skilled labour in the oil and maritime industries and, at the same time, create social impact, changing young lives for the better. Dream Learn Work was formally created in 2008, with the mission to assist young people in acquiring vocational and life skills, developing further and achieving their professional aspirations. Skills shortage remains a challenge Today Brazil has a strong industrial production, having developed fast in the past 20 years, however, the sustainability of its economic growth depends on the availability of qualified workers, which the country does not have. Nowadays, despite the fact that the Brazilian government has invested in better access to professional qualifications, research shows1 that the shortage of skilled labour remains a major issue for companies in the country and that there is the need to improve the access and quality of education2. Therefore, the challenges that originated Dream Learn Work remain. With almost ten years of experience, we are proud to have a solid, sustainable project with a tested and verified training model, successful in giving youth the opportunities for a better future for themselves and their families. “I’m happy that there is an organisation like Dream Learn Work that shows us why education is important. I did a course in Advanced Excel at SENAI Laranjeiras. It was great, I loved the school, teachers and the area. I would not have had this opportunity without DLW.” Iago Fabricio (18), Guadalupe - RJ

Why Dream? Many young people from poor, low-income areas in Rio de Janeiro lack a basic understanding of what their professional opportunities are. They have none or very few professional role models. Levels of crime and drug-trafficking are high. Youth run the risk of losing their lives and futures to opportunities for short-term gains. That is why we need to encourage young people to choose education, inspiring them to dream of a better future through learning and work. 1- http://www.fdc.org.br/imprensa/Paginas/noticia.aspx?noticia=43 (in Portuguese) 2-

DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

The DLW Model We recruit participants from social projects that work in less developed neighborhoods. These local projects contribute in the completion of basic education and the development of life skills. Dream Learn Work offers the next step: professional skills development and the support to enter the formal job market. We do this by organizing and running a number of activities and events to help young people to dream of a better future through education (DREAM). We sponsor vocational training at recognized educational institutions, using our experience based training model (LEARN). In order to close the cycle we also organize work related activities, with the support and collaboration of corporate partners, bringing participants closer to the labour market (WORK). In 2016 the focus will be on technical courses and the preparation for university entry, supporting participants that have enrolled in 2015 or before, following their educational path and making the bridge with the job market.

2. OUR YEAR 2.1. DREAM Dream Learn Work encourages the choice of education through information and inspiration meetings at our NGO partners and external activities, such as motivational workshops, visits, and seminars. In 2015 our ambition was to be an attractive and preferred partner for NGOs in the area of professional qualification training. We focused on improving processes and recruiting more participants. The well-rounded processes that were created this year meant that we were able to foster an increased engagement from social partners, resulting in more meetings at their bases and better recruitment. “Before enrolling in Dream Learn Work I didn’t have a lot of plans for my professional future, but this opportunity opened my mind. Now, I want to work and have a career in IT or administration.” “Education is fundamental for a future with any perspective. The people in DLW have the ability to connect with the participants and that helps a lot in the process of finding a study area and how to achieve your dreams.” - Hugo Paz (17), Guadalupe – RJ

●● Social media project: Dreams of Rio

This project is about sharing personal stories from our participants on social media. They talk about their lives today and ambitions for the future. Our participants are important ambassadors to our work, sharing their stories is a powerful tool to motivate them to carry on their educational trail. In 2015 we started the interview process. Number of interviews done in 2015: 10 Project launched in February 2016.

“I like to cook. When I was younger, I always followed my mother to the kitchen and watched her. The first thing I learned to do was rice. When I got the opportunity to do courses through Dream Learn Work, a culinary course was on top of my list. At the moment I’m trying to learn how to do sushi and sashimi. It’s difficult. But I like it.” Lohan (17) Trindade, São Gonçalo – RJ

Film project: A Brilliant Future

In 2015 we produced the film “A Brilliant Future”. The objective of the film was to encourage young people to choose education. It was 100% sponsored by a corporate partner. The film tells the stories of four participants, and is a powerful testimony to how education change lives in many different ways. Film launched in January 2016.

●● Graduation Ceremonies

Differently from previous years, in 2015, graduation ceremonies were held at the sites of our NGO partners. This has been a significant change, facilitating the attendance of families to the celebrations. It was also an important way of highlighting the importance of our partnerships. The events at Fenase in Niterói, Instituto Bola Pra Frente in Rio de Janeiro and Karanba in São Gonçalo were great successes with the presence of graduates, their families, representatives from corporate partners, the DLW board and the media. In October, the Norwegian Crown Prince visited Rio de Janeiro and participated in the graduation ceremony at our corporate partner VARD shipyard. Number of graduates at ceremonies: 108 Number of people that attended as guests: +300 DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

2.2. LEARN

Dream Learn Work sponsors vocational training at recognized educational institutions. Our main partnerships are with SENAI and SENAC. These schools offer a wide range of training opportunities, and are recognized by their industries. This ensures that Dream Learn Work participants receive high quality training. In 2015, we have broadened the the range of training opportunities. Before we offered training in primarily technical subjects. This year we included other areas such administration, communications and gastronomy in a response to the weaker demand for labour in the maritime and oil & gas industries, as well as, to be able to better offer the best suited training for each participant.

Our participants at the culinary course in SENAI Tijuca

DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

In order to monitor progress, we have implemented individual follow-up of all students. This means that they are advised, supported and motivated during their training. The monitoring is done through meetings at NGO partners bases or at our office and via telephone and social media contacts. This has produced positive results in completion rates and is an attempt of also increasing our focus in developing life skills. Our goal this year was to offer vocational training and also build competencies that the labour market seeks, such as IT and English. The course seat target for this year was set at 215, an increase of over 100% on the previous year. We have achieved 184 course seats, which is an excellent result, and nearly 60% increase on 2014. The challenge was the number of cancellations of courses by educational partners; with a view to improve the situation, meetings with schools have been held and solutions sought. The expectation is that the issues would be resolved and the impact of cancellations minimized. “The experience with DLW has been an immense step in my life. I am doing an English course now and will start soon an introductory course in computing. For me, and many others, that don’t have any work experience or the opportunity to pay for courses. I believe tha DLW can help me getting educated and find a way into the labour market.” Rayan (17), São Gonçalo - RJ

2015 COURSES

Dream Learn Work has developed a model for training that all participants need to follow. They need to demonstrate motivation and dedication to complete each level and proceed to the next. Each level represents the completion of a training course. Courses are in different areas, and each participant follows their own educational journey. Low dropout rates and better allocation of funds are concrete results of the model, as the participants are more engaged and complete each phase of their training. All courses give a qualification and a diploma.

DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

At the moment we are sponsoring two students at university studying Mechanical Engineering. One started in 2014 and the other in 2015.

Level 1 - Basic knowledge and introduction to a subject. Aim: Assess skills and motivation. Ex: Introduction to Electrotechnics - Elementos de Eletrotécnica Level 2 - Longer courses, following the introductory course. Aim: Prepares for an entry level position in a company and to follow on to a technical course. Ex: Electrical Commands - Comandos Elétricos Level 3 - Advanced course. Aim: attain a technical qualification. Ex: Technical in Electrotechnics or Technical in Automation - Técnico em Eletrotécnica ou Técnico em Automação.. Level 4 - University degree. Ex: Electrical Engineering - Engenharia Elétrica.

Full course overview on Annex I

COMPLETION RATES

The completion rate, defined as the percentage of enrolled students who completed the courses, is calculated based on participants that have been signed up in 2015 and data on courses ended until March 2016. Even though the number has been collected in 2016, the figure reflects the results of 2015, as students were enrolled that year. The 90.5% rate means a drop out rate of 9.5%, a reduction of 2.5% from the previous year and excellent result to our efforts, as we have substantially increased course seat numbers.

“I have just finished my Administrative Assistant course through DLW. It was very important to me, helping me to be sure of what I want to do in the future.” – Thamires (19). Guadalupe - RJ DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

ENGLISH COURSES English is an important differential in the labour market in Brazil. Employers find it difficult to recruit employees with the levels of English they require. That is why Dream Learn Work continues to focus on English. English training has drastically increased during 2015. Four full classes in two different languages schools have been procured, providing a good alternative close to where our students live. In São Gonçalo we had two classes: one for current students (basic-intermediate level) and the other was for a younger age group. In Rio de Janeiro city center we had one class for basic level and one for intermediate level. Also, two experienced participants - one in university, the other working as a health and safety technician have been receiving individual tutoring.

“At the moment, I’m studying English through Dream Learn Work. I am learning a lot. DLW follows our learning path and worries about us, which is also good motivation for continuing to study. Before these courses I was very shy and had low self-esteem. The has changed and now I trust myself.” - Laryssa Eduarda da Silva dos Santos (17) Guadalupe

ACTIVITIES ●● Learning visits

Dream Learn Work arranges learning visits to companies. These visits are crucial for participants to get a better understanding of life at work and see their vocations in a practical setting. We set up small groups of students with similar profiles. The visits are of a full or half day duration, and normally include a visit to the work areas, as well as sessions with HR personnel on recruiting and job search skills. Number of participants: 34

DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

A Day At Work In 2015 we have developed an initiative called ‘’A Day At Work’’. The main objective is that our participants have some contact with the world of work, showing them how to put knowledge into practice and how to interact with professionals. It is also Our participants in green helmets at the WoodGroup a good way for them to network. visit in October. Through programs such as ‘’A Day At Work’’ we are able to develop our students further. They are able to understanding better how to apply the subjects they are studying. Becoming more prepared for a future job interviews, for example.

A Day at Work at Kongsberg Maritime The first company to receive our students was Kongsberg Maritime. We are looking forward to grow the number of corporate partners involved in this project. Number of participants: 2

“The experience of spending a day in the Test & Repair Lab was excellent and very productive. I have learnt a lot. I thank DLW for giving me this opportunity and for all you have been doing for me.” Luciano (25), Itaboraí - RJ

2.3. WORK Dream Learn Work actively seeks to differentiate and to increase our participants opportunities in the labour market. We do this through active recruitment initiatives to companies, such as promoting candidates to vacant positions and internships, building a corporate network of HR professionals and by sharing employment opportunities with our students through social media. Some of our participants work in Dream Learn Work partner companies. We have been gathering data on employment status of active students and, by the end of the year, 32% of our participants were formally employed and 14% in positions relevant to education. It is important to point out that many of our students are still studying and, because of that, working outside of their area of qualification. Some are in search of their first job, however, Brazil is in an economic downturn and youth employment has decreased. A big challenge to measure our success in the work pillar is the difficulty in gathering employment information of former participants. The plan is to keep records updated as from now on, a task that has been facilitated by the individual follow up established and administrative changes into record keeping. Dream Learn Work has introduced two of our participants to Rolls Royce Marine Youth Apprenticeship program. Our students are now working as administrative apprentices at the Rolls Royce base in Niterói - RJ. We also have a group of five students working at Vard shipyard in Niterói - RJ.

ACTIVITIES ●● CV Building and Job Search Workshops / Interview training

Our participants are young and have little or no experience in searching and applying for jobs. Workshops and training are delivered by experienced HR personnel from partner companies and provide important tools to develop our students job search competencies, improving their chances in a very competitive labour market. These events have been organized at NGOs sites and companies and are always a great success. Number of participants: 73

●● Online CV Database / Recruitment

One of our 2015 projects was the online CV database. This has been developed to facilitate companies to access our pool of talented young professionals. It has been launched on our website and recruiters from registered companies can access it. We have also continued to participate in partners companies recruitment drives. Dream Learn Work has arranged a number of interviews at partner companies for our participants and has established stronger relationships with HR departments to have our students consistently considered for vacancies.

●● Dream Learn Work Mentor

We have developed and introduced a new program for mentoring. It is called Dream Learn Work Mentor. Many young people from disadvantaged backgrounds find it very hard to get a good idea of job opportunities, what waits them at work, and even more importantly, how to get into the job market. “Dream Learn Work Mentor” aims to connect our participants with people with experience. The goal is to increase job rates.

DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

The program has two parts, internal and external mentoring. Internal Mentoring Participants early on in their training are often in doubt about which path to follow. Mentoring by Dream Learn Work staff encourages participants into looking for possible professional career routes, suggesting courses and opening a channel of communication. Number of participants: 104 External Mentoring Mentors are volunteers from partner companies that wish to share their experiences with a young person starting out and help them take the first steps towards realising their careers. External mentors support youngsters closer to the job market.

“I have had the pleasure of mentoring two of the students of DLW for over a year. I am impressed by the hard work these young people are putting into becoming successful in life. Their spirit and enthusiasm for learning and growing is really touching and sometimes I believe I get more from them then I give them in reflections and views on core values in life.” Arne-Christian Haukeland, Head of DNB Brasil and DLW mentor

3. PARTNERSHIPS Dream Learn Work enjoys and nurtures strong local ties with our partners. Many partners have been part of our network since the beginning in 2006. others joined more recently, reflecting the growth and development of Dream Learn Work.

3.1. Social partners (NGOs) Dream Learn Work has today six local social partners (details in Annex II) covering a large area of Rio de Janeiro state. The NGOs are essential in sustaining support to our target audience, as we work in cooperation in order to recruit youth from less developed neighborhoods. This year we have improved our recruitment process, holding regular meetings at NGO partners sites, demonstrating professional opportunities to young people and encouraging them to enter the DLW program. This change has worked well and the number of new recruits has grown. New procedures with NGO partners means that there is more collaboration between organizations and the establishment of educational paths and participants´ follow up and contact has been facilitated.

“It is always rewarding to be associated with institutions that can help us achieve our goal of promoting social progress and equal opportunities to children and youth. Together with DLW we are able to give to some of our participant the opportunity to do vocational training, which offers them better preparation for future opportunities. 2015 was a good year!!!” Fernanda Esteves, Commercial Manager at Projeto Karanba

3.2. Educational Partners

Educational partners provide training to our participants and are vital to the success of our program. Vocational education and training can ease entry into the labour market and provide youth with more learning opportunities. Our main providers are SENAI (National Service for Industrial Training) and SENAC (National Service for Commercial Training), institutions recognised by their respective industries. More details on educational partners can be found at the Annex III.

6. Financials

All figures in R$.

Notes: *Cost for English course is included in Training courses ** cost in NOK: 15,354, average currency rate: 1 BRL= 2,43 NOK *** Funds transferred in December 2015 and received in January 2016 In 2014 DLW sent a new application for financial support for 2014-15 to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Norway (MFA). In November the same year, DLW received a positive reply, and the application for NOK 1.320.000 was approved. This support is for 2 years, and will be paid out in 2 portions. One was received in December 2014, and has been transferred in May 2015. Even though there was an increase in the total donations from companies in Brazil in 2015, this might not be sustainable as the general downturn in the DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

market worsens. Two application for funds to foundations were completed and unsuccessful. We have started planning the development of a more diversified range of financial contributors, building relationships with other sectors, such as renewable energy, hospitality, manufacture, etc. to improve prospects. In 2015 DLW spent 18% on administration (based on the total cost for the year), the rest of the funds were spent directly towards the students and the educational program. This is a 5% decrease from 2014 admin costs (23%). As from October 2015 we started with a full working team - 4 full time employees and 1 part-time. A further decrease in this figure is expected for 2016, as we improve organizational and administrative efficiency. The total and official financial report for Dream Learn Work Brazil and Dream Learn Work Norway can be forwarded upon request. Accounting DLW use recognized accounting companies both in Norway and Brazil, and all reports are filed according to local laws and regulations in both countries.

7. Administration

7.1. OSCIP

As an “OSCIP” registered NGO financial contributors can obtain the right to deduct the contributions from the taxable income. This year renewal of our OSCIP registration has been slightly delayed due to issues regarding necessary documentation. This has been resolved and registration is under its way. As an OSCIP we are recognized as a “proper” NGO, we can apply for public funding in Brazil, and it is seen as a proof of a well managed organization. DREAM LEARN WORK Annual Report 2015

7.2. Organizational Development

We were in need of organizational development, in order to further professionalize the organization, and to increase efficiency. In addition to OSCIP, the following activities have been implemented for this purpose:

●● MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

• Google Drive has been successfully implemented with Dropbox files transferred and accessible. • One archive for management documentation, such as organizationand function descriptions, organization charts, processes, routines and policies, reports etc.
