In Saint-Etienne, 54 young people took part in the Together for Youth Integration training programme. At the end of the sessions, in late December, they were awarded a digital passport, certifying their digital skills.

54 young people from the Saint-Etienne Mission Locale received their digital passports at end December.

The young people worked on the digital education programme’s three modules: managing my digital identity, my CV online: finding a job online, and accessing my rights online. The workshops were run by members of the Saint-Etienne Mission Locale, but they were not alone. The Orange Solidarity association, made up of employees contributing their skills, also worked with the young people to introduce them to and help them use digital resources. A much appreciated method, as Soraya explains: "it’s great to discuss, to work with other people, people from outside". Medhi and Kahina are already thinking about how they will put their passports to use: "tomorrow we are going to indicate on our CVs that we took these modules". .

28 digital training sessions and 180 young people trained

To celebrate the end of the project and recognise the young participants, the Mission Locale team and Garantie Jeunes wanted to award all of the young people with our digital passport. The certificate proves that they completed the various modules and have developed basic digital skills.
They received their passports at an event led by Delphine Jusselme, deputy mayor of Saint-Etienne. She reminded everyone of how digital technology is spreading to all sectors of society and of its importance when looking for a job. Surrounded by his team, the director of the Mission Locale, Mokthar Boughari, stressed the "absolute" necessity of these digital education workshops.

While they did not all earn the certification, the training sessions made everyone eager to master digital technologies. Some even want to go further and learn about other topics like job interviews.
