Supporting Early School Leavers

Today, one in six students in France leaves school with no qualifications, resulting in a pool of wasted talent that fuels social vulnerability. In response, United Way-L’Alliance, a joint corporate philanthropy project, aims to provide long-term support to 15,000 young people in some fifty priority middle schools, with a view to helping them enter the workforce by 2020. To do this, it brings together established local stakeholders such as nonprofits, companies and local governments to offer early school leavers tailor-made solutions, with employees volunteering as tutors and nonprofits providing the framework. To successfully integrate into the community and the world of work, young people need to develop both technical know-how and soft skills. Providing them with the keys to do so empowers them to take control of their professional future. Total Foundation is a committed member of United WayL’Alliance, in partnership with some 20 companies and the French Ministry of Education. Patrick Pouyanné, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Total, has been appointed Chairman of the project to encourage more French companies to get involved.
