On March 16th 2022, at the “La Dragonne” community center in Metz, eastern France, the Fondation Air Liquide officially handed a €15,000 grant to Afev (Association de la fondation étudiante pour la ville) for their first “Apprentis solidaires” class in Metz.
At the end of 2021, Air Liquide’s shareholders generously donated to 4 projects of the Foundation, including this one. The project is also getting the support of employees from the Air Liquide France Industrie (ALFI) sites in this part of Lorraine, who are contributing their expertise.
With its “Apprentis solidaires” programme, Afev wants to help young people acquire the social skills they need to get started in the workplace, while helping companies find apprentices. Afev's first class started in January 2022 and will last 6 months.
The Fondation Air Liquide promotes jobs-integration programmes, in particular for young people, that build on the technical expertise and geographical presence of the Air Liquide Group. The Foundation warmly thanks all the Air Liquide shareholders and employees who are involved in this project.
