Impactful internships for underprivileged middle school students

+ More than 1,000 internships in the first quarter alone! updateThe ViensVoirMonTaf team prospecting for great internships at the Ecole du Breuil

+ More than 1,000 internships in the first quarter alone!

To be more precise, we're at 1,048 internships... Record broken!!

And at the start of this term, Ecosol internships are taking off in a big way!

From the water cycle at Hydreka, to sustainable food at Bellebouffe, or even renewable energies at Enerdata, students are not at the end of their surprises!

"I'd like to stay in the field of sustainable energy" confides Antoine, a student at Grenoble's Collège Olympique, during his internship at Enerdata.

As you know, the year is just beginning. Thousands of 3rd graders without a network are still hoping to find a 5-day internship in the coming weeks.

Still more great Ecosol internships to come: partnerships are being built, in urban agriculture at Cueillette Urbaine, in the circular economy at NEO-ECO or at the École du Breuil, a horticulture school run by the city of Paris.

As captains and supporters of ViensVoirMonTaf, you have made and continue to make all this possible!

So 1048 thanks to you, and don't forget, the adventure is just beginning, with you!

At your notebooks!

It's back-to-school time, and just as well, "school" rhymes with "ecosol": ViensVoirMonTaf is embarking on a new year of intense activity to accompany middle-schoolers from REP and REP+ towards their dream internship.

Since our last news, the association has received new donations from its Captains, i.e. almost €160 more.

Eight Captains are joining the adventure, whose objective, we remind you, is to take students towards an ideal 3rd grade internship, chosen, and within the precise framework of this project, ecological and supportive.

Welcome (and thank you) to them, the adventure continues!!

"Have you ever heard of Sustainable Development? What is it?"
This is one of the first questions asked during our Ecosol workshops, aimed at 4th graders.

Since January 2023, ViensVoirMonTaf has raised €2,737 thanks to donations from Captain Cause for its Viens Voir Mon Taf ecological and solidarity project. Selected 19 times by companies confident in its project, the association has been able to count on donations from 59 Captains, i.e. 59 employees or customers of these companies, who have chosen to support it.

The ecosol project involves 200 "green" internships for 3rd graders from REP and REP+ countries. It's an opportunity for these young people to discover the jobs involved in the ecological transition, which are still too little known. After the workshops in 4th grade, the 3rd graders discover jobs in education and training, access to healthcare, building and sustainable infrastructure, economic and social responsibility, agriculture, the environment and living things, and justice and human rights.

"During my internship, I was able to learn more about associative values, and discover all the social projects that MSERA is developing. I was impressed by the many meetings because they showed their commitment and they were sometimes fun"
-Ethel, on an internship with the association Moderniser Sans Exclure in Lyon

The money raised enables us to better support students, by recruiting teams to support students in middle schools and to canvass companies likely to offer quality internships.

A big thank you to the 8 Captains from ENGIE, 13 Captains from D&Consultants, the 2 from Vinci Facilities GPM, Xavier Castex Assurance, the 15 from Elaia, the 3 from warmango, the one from Respup, the 6 from EIRL Alexis CASTRO, and the 8 from VINCI Construction France, for their invaluable donations.

Ecosol workshops for 4th graders in three middle schools in the Paris region updateViensVoirMonTaf introduces REP and REP+ secondary school students to careers in the fields of ecology and solidarity, to raise their awareness of the issues involved and open doors for them in these fields.

Ecosol workshops for 4th graders in three middle schools in the Paris region

We're planning to roll out ecosol workshops to 4th graders in three collèges (one in Argenteuil, one in Trapes and one in Paris). The project is still in the preparation phase, and the workshops will only take place at the end of the school year. The aim of the Ecosol project is to raise young people's awareness of the challenges of sustainable development, while at the same time introducing them to a range of careers in the environmental and solidarity sectors. The diversity of sustainable development professions is still little known among young people, hence the interest in devoting a time of exchange around the discovery of these professions and their accessibility. The aim is to start by talking about commitment, then orientation, in anticipation of their 3rd grade internship, and in a broader sense, their future career.
