The "Ecoles de production" offer young people between the ages of 15 and 18 qualifying training based on the teaching method of "do it to learn".
Students learn a job by making products or offering services, responding to real customer orders.
There are 34 production schools in France, that prepare 930 students for state vocational diplomas (CAP, BAC pro or professional certifications).
The Renault Foundation supports these schools, which enable young people who have dropped out of school to train for jobs in which recruitment is difficult, particularly in the automotive sector.
In concrete terms, the Foundation provides training equipment (milling machines, workbenches, exhaust gas extractors, etc.) to two "Ecole de production" in Lille and Lens in the automotive section, in the Groupe Renault’s employment catchment areas. This new equipment facilitates the daily work of the students and their teachers in the workshops.
The association is mainly known for its main activity on food assistance. But it is above all the privileged point of contact to allow an accompaniment towards autonomy. “Les Restaurants du Cœur” thus offer a global support to the people they welcome: help with housing, access to rights and justice, reintegration through employment...
They provide comprehensive and personalized support to re-mobilize job seekers around their professional project within workshops or inclusion projects. However, 40.2% of the people who enter the inclusion projects say they have difficulty getting around: without driving licence, without a car, or without access to public transportation in rural areas.
It is in this context that "Les Restaurants du Cœur" offers employment support to its beneficiaries. The Renault Foundation wanted to participate by co-financing 300 driving licence.
"Initiative France" is a network of local associations, that welcomes business creators in need throughout France, evaluate their project and finance it with an interest-free, collateral-free honorary loan.
92% of companies are still in business three years after their creation.
In 2019 - 40% of project leaders were women.
The Renault Foundation is supporting the creation of a program to help women in the city's Priority Neighborhoods to set up their own businesses. It also supports "Initiative France" in strengthening its actions in the field and helping with women entrepreneurship (awareness-raising, information, financing, support).
"Mouvement Emmaüs France” is a factory of social innovation and solidarity, which provides unconditional support to people in very precarious situations (homeless people, long-term unemployed, over-indebted families, migrants, people in custody or those released from prison, etc.) by offering them access to accommodation, housing and employment.
In particular, Emmaüs France offers employment contracts to the most vulnerable people in its inclusion structures.
The Renault Foundation supports "Mouvement Emmaüs France" in the reintegration of the long-term unemployed through employment, by providing financial support for the development of existing inclusion structures in the Île-de-France region. It also supports the creation of new inclusion structures targeting the post-career population.
The association "Solidarité Nouvelle face au Chômage" provides job seekers with support, human and personalized assistance.
Its network of volunteer coaches offers weekly meetings to recreate social ties and move forward with professional reconstruction.
Within this framework, the Renault Foundation provides financial support, via local branches, to 480 job seekers, as well as computer equipment for the association's collective workshops in Normandy.
Among the fields of action of the Raoul Follereau association: reintegration through employment in rural areas in France.
Raoul Follereau thus supports local initiatives to help people excluded from employment and in precarious situations to create an activity to reintegrate into rural areas.
It is in this context that the Renault Foundation supports the association in its fight against job insecurity in the Hauts de France region, more specifically by supporting twenty projects to create professional activities.
For more than 75 years, "Secours Populaire Français" has been fighting against poverty and exclusion.
Everywhere in France, its volunteers give "a helping hand" to beneficiaries when they are looking for a job or training. This support takes various forms: orientation towards competent structures (Pôle Emploi, local youth missions, etc.), help in writing CVs and preparing for job interviews. Or help in obtaining a driving licence with the help of partners, such as driving schools.
To take part in this solidarity mobility initiative, the Renault Foundation has become a partner of "Secours Populaire Français" and is committed to co-financing 180 driving licences to help people in difficulty return to work.
The Foundation supports the ELL'OWEB program, launched by the association "Objectif Pour l'Emploi" (OPE) in 2017.
An expert in the promotion of scientific and technical professions, this program is deployed in the cities of Lyon, Grenoble and Valence. It is part of the association's mission to promote equal opportunity in access to career choices.
The aim of the program is to raise awareness and introduce high school girls to digital professions, in which women are under-represented.
The Foundation supports the "Unis-Cité" association in its "Young Digital Citizens" program. Launched in 2018, the program aims to raise awareness of the uses of information technologies to fight against exclusion and the digital divide.
The Foundation's support has made it possible to contribute to the development of this program and to develop a new pedagogical module to fight against gender prejudices in the digital, technical and scientific fields.
28,000 children between the ages of 7 and 15 attended workshops with 225 civic service volunteers on coding, Artificial Intelligence awareness and digital citizenship.
The Foundation supports Action Tank in its fight against poverty and exclusion in France. Action Tank has created study and reflection ecosystems formed by economic and social actors.
The Foundation is participating in an experiment in pilot projects to innovate against exclusion and poverty.
The Renault Foundation supports the work of the Society & Organizations (S&O) Institute at HEC Paris.
This interdisciplinary institute brings together more than 50 research professors who place societal and environmental issues at the heart of their research, teaching and action with companies.
The S&O Institute responds to the major challenges of our time, such as the quest for meaning, the inclusive economy and ecological transition.
