50 € = 1 training day for a young person in an ETRE school
Why we love it?

The ETRE schools' genius idea is to combat school dropout and the loss of a sense of purpose, by providing fun training in the professions involved in the ecological transition: take part in the creation of a new school specializing in the sustainable management of green spaces!

The project

InsertionEducation
The Ecological Transition Schools - ETRE were created to build a training path adapted to young people who have dropped out of the conventional school system, while accelerating the ecological transition through trades and skills. The spin-off project involves the creation of 10 schools a year throughout France, to support as many young people as possible.

Solution

Every year in France, over 100,000 young people leave the school system without any qualifications. At the same time, the ecological transition is developing, and related professions are booming. According to ADEME, by 2050, nearly 1 million jobs will be created as part of the ecological transition.

ETRE schools were created to turn this dual challenge into an asset: building a training path adapted to young people who drop out of the conventional school system, while accelerating the ecological transition through trades and skills.
 
The Ecological Transition Schools - ETRE accompany and train young people in difficulty in the manual trades of the ecological transition (ecological agriculture, cycle repair, eco-construction...).

In these training courses, which are free of charge for participants, young people discover several green and greening trades in practical, manual workshops, work on their career orientation and acquire multiple skills for the ecological transition. The aim of the training courses is to help young people who have dropped out of school find a job in the ecological transition.

The 1st ETRE school was created in Lahage (31) in 2017. Following a number of projects that led to the opening of 10 new schools in France, the incubation program was launched in 2022, enabling 10 schools to be created every year since then.


The money will be used for

The €50 covers the remuneration of the trainers, the purchase of tools and equipment used in the practical workshops, and the organization of transport to enable the young people to get to the training site. 
One day a young girl said to me: "Thank you for creating a school for people who don't like school".
