Solution

In 2018, the OECD ranked France as the most unequal country in Europe when it comes to education, with young people's social origins weighing heavily on their educational and career paths, and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds disappearing as they progress through higher education.

Thus, Télémaque, a pioneering mentoring association, is responding to this social issue in France by creating the conditions for greater social equity in access to professional and personal success for motivated young people from fragile territories. The program takes effect from 5th grade through to the final year of high school, and is built around 4 levers: socio-cultural openness, discovery of the business world, building self-confidence and academic perseverance.

The money will be used for

Examples of cultural activities carried out:
- Ravel's Concerto for the left hand at the Orchestre national de Lyon;
- guided tour of the Blaise Pascal exhibition in Clermont Ferrand;
- guided tour of the Shoah memorial in Paris;
- day trip to Arles (guided tour of the Musée Arles Antique and guided tour of the history and architecture of the Tour Luma);
- introduction to Basque pelota in Bordeaux;
- guided tour of the Colisée in Roubaix.
We're working to facilitate a national movement for equal opportunities in education, so let's act together so that young people can see the future in a big way!
