Committing to a young person

INSTITUT TELEMAQUE

INSTITUT TELEMAQUE

Give each young person the opportunities they deserve

in their education and personal life, through a company tutor and educational supervisor.

Numerous studies show that the French education system is struggling, by itself, to promote the talents of young people from disadvantaged areas. The under-representation of individuals from lower-class backgrounds in higher education is a fact. The child of a manual worker or clerical or sales worker has on average seven times fewer chances than the child of a manager or teacher of accessing higher education in France.

 

Institut Télémaque supports bright and motivated youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds from the age of 13 to 18. The young people it selects benefit from financial support and dual tutoring from an educational supervisor and a company tutor (volunteer employee of a business).

Fonds Groupe SEB has provided financial support since 2014 and 16 of its employees support 16 students as tutors.

Over 1,300 young people have benefit from Institut Télémaque support since 2005. To extend its efforts, the organization is looking for new sponsors, notably in Auvergne Rhone-Alpes.
