Together for youth integration, here we go!

The pilot stage of the “Together for youth integration” programme has just ended. From this autumn, digital training and education workshops will be provided at dozens of Local Missions in France. Christian Blaize, programme coordinator, tells us about it.

What is new with the Together for Youth Integration programme?

“The pilot phase was rounded off with a meeting with 6 local missions in July. We received various feedback on the digital modules we offered them during May and June. The Local Missions asked us to offer a maximum of 3 modules:

  • My rights online
  • My digital identity
  • My CV and online job search

The aim is really to help young people to find a job. We also decided to provide support for Local Mission advisers. Training and awareness half-days will be organised within Local Missions for advisers, with the help of Orange Solidarité. Digital leaders will be named to help train advisers for the digital education modules.
In summary, the modules are ready and the full-scale stage will be launched before the end of September. A call for projects has been launched to help mobilise the Local Missions. They will deploy the three modules and raise awareness amongst their advisers to be consistent with the programme. The call for projects is in progress, it will end on 7 October."

What feedback did you receive during the pilot stage?

“Initially, we planned to have four digital education modules. However, in the field, the Local Missions told us that they only needed three. Some also preferred to have just two. Other important feedback included starting the training with the “my rights online” module. Our initial thoughts were to first focus on understanding social networks to control your digital reputation, before dealing with job hunting and finally talking about rights online. All of this feedback was very important for us. We are working in collaboration with solidarity partners to best adapt the modules and training courses."


How is the training organised?

“Each module lasts half a day. At the end of the training, we want to issue a diploma called the “Orange Foundation digital passport” for all those who have carefully followed the three modules. Of course we are going to monitor the number of young people benefiting from this training, whether they come from the Youth Employment Support programme (Dispositif Garantie Jeunes) or voluntarily. All Local Missions will have digital education modules. I think that the majority will be interested by these modules. Our goal is to know how these modules have helped them to find a job at the end of the process.”
