Mentoring can change your whole life

Nos quartiers ont des talents is a non-profit organization that connects businesses and young graduates in zones at risk of social exclusion. It began in 2005 in response to the need to help young people from disadvantaged backgrounds who could not find a job despite having studied for years with enthusiasm and effort.

We looked into the reason why these young people could not find work and we concluded that what they lacked was the right preparation to look for a job. So we carried out mentoring programmes to train them. 60% of the 200 graduates found a qualified job in six months. After this experience we decided to create the association.


 


There are some requisites that the young people must meet: they must have a minimum of four years study and have difficulties finding a job owing to their disadvantaged backgrounds. For the mentors, the requisites are that they are actively employed; that they are aware that they have a network to help and that their commitment is voluntary. Mentor and young person share expertise, and we always try to connect the young people with a mentor who has a similar profile.


 


In the six years since it was set up, the association has helped 13,210 young people, thanks to 3,340 mentors, and has achieved a 75% success rate. Mentoring really can change your whole life: after years of study and overseas stays, I returned to my country and tried to find a good job, but I couldn’t, and thanks to a mentor I obtained some positions; finally I decided to  work with the association.
