Young people without qualifications: new features to access employment

This year we have strengthened our action in favour of young people with 14 new Solidarity FabLabs. But that’s not all. We are also reinforcing recognition of their skills. How? By designing new training courses and issuing a digital passport recognising what they have learned: even more advantages for finding employment!


new features to access employment


The Foundation’s first digital passports

Young people registered at the Mission Local (Local Mission) don’t have qualifications and most don’t know how to use the internet to search for work or for professional purposes. So, we introduced 1300 digital workshops with the Missions Locales to address this need. 7,900 young people followed the courses this year to learn to use digital technology in order to land a job interview or even a job! A new feature this year, the Digital Passport from the Orange Foundation validates this training and recognises their achievements. Over 390 passports have already been awarded in June. An asset to finally bring these young people closer to employers.

New developments in the Solidarity FabLabs

With our support, new training courses will be provided, free-of-charge, in the Solidarity FabLabs for young people seeking to enter the world of work. Developed with our partner associations, they respond in a practical way to the needs expressed by the job market. Their length varies from 1 to 9 months. They enable participants to learn digital skills - learning how to use digital manufacturing tools - and cross-cutting skills including project management, working in a group, innovation, autonomy, etc.
In total, 14,200 unemployed young people have been trained, free-of-charge, in our programmes in 2017. We are continuing to act for the future of young people in difficulty and to reinvent digital and supportive means of learning.
