Digital Workshops

We want to help young people to use digital technology as a stepping stone to the world of work. Since 2010, alongside our partner charities and our committed employees, we have been holding free-of-charge digital workshops throughout France to train young people in digital technology who otherwise are often unemployed, unskilled and sometimes vulnerable.

How?

Our role is to help these young people adopt digital professional behaviour. That means teaching them how to look for a job, how to use digital tools in a company and even considering digital technology as a career in itself.
In our workshops, these young people learn to use digital technology to find a job: online CV, use of social media, e-reputation... This knowledge is recognised by the Orange Foundation digital passport: a plus on the CV for a future employer.
Accompanied by the ’Missions Locales’, the young people can also work together on a professional digital project: production of web-based TV, a collaborative platform...
In 2017, working with the 447 ’Missions Locales’, we trained 10,000 young people all over France free-of-charge. Since 2018, almost 25,000 young people have been trained in this way in France every year in 10,000 workshops.

With whom?

Non-profit organisations (like the ’Missions Locales’), in charge of young people in vocational training, work with committed Orange employees. Together, they train young people in digital tools and pass on their knowledge of the world of work so that, in turn, they can also join that world.
Thanks to the involvement of our employees, these young people from 16 to 25 years old develop their skills while benefiting from the experience and knowledge of digital professionals. These skills are divided into three different modules:

 

cformation metz
programme Together for youth integration digital training
digital solidarity education Together for youth integration

These skills are divided into three different modules:

  • Accessing my rights online
  • My online CV: finding a job online
  • Managing my digital identity

These three modules form a foundation of knowledge that they can use when looking for a job or training. Above all, they receive the "Orange Foundation digital passport", which certifies that they have attended these digital training workshops.

Over and above these digital skills, our employees provide concrete answers to the questions that young people looking for a career path ask themselves. They help them choose a career and demystify the business world. By sharing their daily lives with them, they teach them to organise themselves, work as a team and adopt workplace etiquette.
