Apprentis d’Auteuil in the fight against illiteracy

Apprentis d’Auteuil ("Auteuil apprentices") educates and trains young people in difficulty and helps them to integrate social and occupational life.

The partnership between the Groupe SEB Fund and Apprentis d'Auteuil is a long-term venture.

APPRENTIS D'AUTEUIL

In 2010 and 2011, the Foundation financed a major part of the work on the kitchen and cafeteria at the Jean-Marie Vianney site in Côte-Saint-André in southeast France. The creation of a self-service restaurant open to the public has enabled young people on CAP cooking courses and CAP catering agent courses to complete their studies while gaining real-life experience of an occupational activity.

In 2012 and 2013, the Foundation provided financial support for the launch of the "La Salle à Manger" educational restaurant in Lyon.

In 2014, the Fund provided €15,000 in support for the purchase of a car for the AMEJ socially-responsible driving school at the Part-Dieu training center in Lyon. The aim is to foster the professional integration of young people in difficulty by helping them to obtain their driving license and providing them with needs-adapted learning conditions. Highly positive results have been obtained, with driving license preparation times reduced from 21 months to 8 months on average and 22 individuals having obtained their license thanks to this new initiative in 2014.

 

In 2015, the Fund financed workshops providing individualized support to illiterate young adults. The workshops, run by the Rhone-Alpes Savoir Pour Réussir organization, respond to the needs of 16-25 year-olds experiencing difficulties in writing, school learning and self-confidence by facilitating their social and occupational integration.
