Support young people to return to the education system

The Air Liquide Foundation is supporting the new project of the association "Ecole de la 2ème Chance Grand Lille". The aim is to set up a support system for young people who want to return to the education system. The association starts by defining a training plan with the young adults; then the NGO supports them throughout their studies in order to ensure its success.

Nearly
2,000 young adults

helped since 2006

65% of the students

have found a job/certificate course by the time they leave the school

The awareness pack

In concrete terms, this project will be implemented thanks to the creation of an "awareness pack" presenting, in particular, the various diplomas offered for each type of career. This support also takes the form of personalized monthly meetings for the youths concerned with a variety of people: recent graduates, partner companies, etc.

The Air Liquide Foundation's funding is financing the implementation of this educational support system
