Every week, we highlight a Societe Generale Foundation for Solidarity partner charity
The Frateli organization seeks to help young people from underprivileged backgrounds to acquire the means to succeed in higher education, not least via a sponsorship program involving young professionals and, more generally, by undertaking the direct or indirect measures needed to achieve this goal.
In 2004, Frateli set up sponsorships between underprivileged students who obtained a “Good” or “Very Good” grade at the baccalaureate and recent graduates who have undertaken a similar course of study.
Since 2007 the Societe Generale group has partnered with the organization and some 40 employees are currently Frateli sponsors.
Sponsors share their experience and their network with each young person and give them the tools, methods, and confidence they need to succeed and to join the workforce.
