Anna Pardillo, former LP4Y Youth working for Sodexo

If we continue this support with Youth our role will be more prosperous. So let's give them a chance to have a better life. Let's pull them to poverty, let's give them a chance to smile, to reach their dream, to remove their fear. Be their voice and be their bridge to harvest their own success. Let's be the initiator to change our world to become a better place to live in.

Bart Verheyen, Commercial Director, Medicare

 

Working with the Youth for us came actually as a very natural thing to do. First of all because Vietnam as a country gave us the opportunity as company to grow, therefore we find it only normal to give back to the country by at least offering to the Youth or the excluded Youth the chance for a job and a chance to get their life back on the rails.

The Youth you will work with

The YIN is collaborating with several organisations that directly work with the Youth through specific programs (educational and/or financial support to professional development)

 

> Youth from 15 to 24 Years old

> Coming from excluded backgrounds (due for instance to family and financial issues)

> Presenting a limited educational background for the large majority of them

> Involved in a variety of programs: from general professional skills programs to specific vocational trainings (IT, Hotel - Restaurant Catering , F&B, etc)

Activities Opportunities & Illustrations

> Mock Interviews

A 30 mins to 1 hour activity upon availability, open to all team members, the opportunity to have a privileged moment with a Youth, to detect talents

PROCESS

 

> The YIN collects member availabilities for mock interviews (name of participants, time, platform if digital)

 

> The YIN shares these mock interview opportunities with the YIN partners and coordinates the Youth participation

 

The YIN organises an orientation session with the team members who will interview, introduces interviewer and interviewee, supports activity logistic and eases feedback delivery

> Company visits

The opportunity to present your company, meet the Youth, engage team members, help the Youth discover professional opportunities, find their way and develop ambitions

PROCESS (also applicable to trainings & testimonies)

> The YIN helps you design an event adapted to the Youth and collects information (place, time, number of participants, ...)

 

> The YIN shares this opportunity with the YIN partners and coordinates the Youth participation

 

The YIN connects participants and supports activity logistic

> Trainings & Testimonies

From professional testimonies to soft and hard skills training, the opportunity to help the Youth develop decisive professional knowledge and skills in order to support further integration

There are plenty of possibilities and options. The Youth are fast learners, highly dedicated and adaptable, committed to succeed at every task that will be attributed to them

Organizing an activity

 All YIN members commit to organise at least one YIN activity/year (company visits, trainings, mock interviews, employment, internship…)

 

Several possibilities

 

> Contact the YIN members to share your ideas and opportunities

 

>  Discuss alternatives with the YIN Project Managers throughout follow-up meetings

>  Register on the calendar of activity requests (Coming soon)

Each company is free to design its own activity
 

> Our priority is to allow you to have the best experiences, taking into considerations all your requirements in order to match with your expectations

When designing your activity, and depending on content or purpose, you have the opportunity to define:
> The day and hour of the activity
> The duration of the activity (from 30 minutes for a mock interview to a few hours for other activities and more for internships or jobs)
> The location (Digital, at an NGO center, in your office, etc)
> The number of participants
> The scale: local (in your country, in a specific area) or global (at international scale in digital)
> Any other criteria to take into consideration while organising the activity

> The YIN Project Manager will then support the organisation of the activity and coordinate the Youth participation based on your preferences
