Each week, a partner association of the Societe Generale Corporate Foundation is brought into the spotlight.
The Drôme-Ardèche Second Chance School deals with people aged 18-25, who have left school less than a year ago without any qualifications, and who are having problems with social and professional integration. For the young people who join the scheme, it helps them to find a job which matches their likes, their skills and the possibilities offered by the job market, but also to rediscover their desire to learn and to respect the rules of group and social life.
The Drôme-Ardèche Second Chance School (E2C 26-07) opened its doors in February 2010 in Valence. The training centre, which is part of the E2C France network, has one aim: not to leave any young people behind. Chaotic family lives, bad choices, school dropouts…: difficult lives can cause people to lose their self-confidence. They therefore leave the school system with no qualifications and no job, and often fall into long-term unemployment and insecurity.
The Societe Generale Corporate Foundation supports an innovative project called « De l’écrit à l’écran » (‘from script to screen’). The association uses the digital world to consolidate the interns’ skills. After an initial partnership in 2013 with the Festival International des Scénaristes, EC2 26-07 aims to guide another 15 interns through an 8-month long cinematography project. This project has two stages: writing a script, shooting and editing a short, and communication about the release.
