Apprentis d'Auteuil has nearly 150 years' experience with delinquents.
Recognised as a public interest foundation since 1929, Apprentis d'Auteuil educates and trains more than 14,000 young people to enable them to join society as free, responsible adults, while supporting their families in their educational role.
A commitment: supporting any young person, whether boy or girl, experiencing severe difficulties at school, socially or in their family environment or at risk of marginalisation.
Key figures for the Foundation:
Since early 2011, the Societe Generale Foundation has supported the renovation of the kitchen of the Relais d'Auteuil integration restaurant near Nantes. In the middle of 2011, as it was very committed to the professional integration of young people and close to the values of rugby, it supported the development of the Apprentis d'Auteuil rugby projects in 2012. This project targeted young people aged 14-21 year from under-privileged environments, either failing at school or on their way to dropping out, with a view to bringing them back on track both in terms of school and socially by perfecting their rugby talent. This integration through sport project was implemented in four Apprentis D'Auteuil establishments in France (Lycée Professionnel Jean-Marie Vianney, La Côte St André (38); Collège St Jean, St Sulpice (81); Saint Roch, Durfort Lacapelette (82); St Jean, Sannois (95)). In 2012, the Foundation also took part in in the DEPAR (Dispositif de plate-formes pour une alternance réussie - Platforms for successful part-time work and study) project to promote the training and professional integration of young people aged between 16 and 20 years from the school system experiencing social difficulties. In 2013, the Societe Generale Foundation supported the creation of a roofing workshop for the Loos en Gohelle (62) professional training centre surrounding eco-construction and eco-renovation.
