Education & employment
In France, about 2 million disadvantaged students are struggling at school and about 2 million young adults are NEETS (not in education, employment or training).
Change the fate of a generation
In France, it takes about 180 years, the equivalent of 6 generations, for a poor family to socially lift itself to middle class. Young people from disadvantaged backgrounds are disappearing more and more throughout the educational journey. They are half as likely to find a job as the average. This is due to academic and professional difficulties that find their roots in early chilhood. France is one of the OECD countries in which the linguistic, social and cultural capital inherited at birth strongly affects the future. Education is the most powerful lever to reduce inequalities and boost social mobility.
Accompany disadvantaged young people at each milestone of the educational journey.
Because schools alone cannot compensate for all social, territorial and cultural inequalities, charities work alongside teachers to foster the success of the most vulnerable students, from early childhood to professional integration.
