We'll provide to 60 young early school leavers, of 2 French departments Herault and Seine-Saint-Denis, a personalized coaching of 18 workshops in order to remobilize them to a learning or career plan.
In France, every year, 150,000 young people leave school without qualifications. To fight against the dropping out of 60 youth from deprived urban areas in the departments of Herault and Seine-Saint-Denis, the "Act Against Exclusion Foundation", conducts preventive actions. By combining human support, computer support and economic world support, the Re-connected Junior Camp project, helps to lead these young toward a recognized qualification on the labor market.
During 6 months, 60 youths identified as potential dropouts will receive 12 individual workshops and 6 collective workshops, in order to motivate and to remobilize them toward a successful course of education or a chosen career plan.
Our action will enable 60 youths to reposition themselves in the labor market or on a learning path according to their wishes.
The objective is to reduce the dropout's rate in the two pilot departments.This action will make it possible for youth identified as potential dropout, the opportunity to raise awareness of the business world, change their performances while stressing the importance of gaining a qualification in the chosen field of activity
