Since it was founded, the Montpellier company Passe has been helping young people with employment challenges. Passe now steps up to the next level with the Companies and Neighborhoods Charter.
Supporting project leadersPasse signed the Companies and Neighborhoods Charter to further confirm its commitment. The charter seeks to create ties between residents in underprivileged neighborhoods and the entrepreneurial world. The company benefits from access to a network managed by Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole and French authorities, with assistance from Face Hérault – the Act Against Exclusion Foundation (Fondation Agir Contre l’Exclusion) – which helps carry out new actions. Plans include internship opportunities for middle-school students, open-door events, and professional placement with the Pôle Emploi employment agency.
With a focus on keeping her company growing, she hopes to continue making “interesting encounters” thanks to inclusion opportunities.
“We also want to support project leaders from those neighborhoods,” says Nathalie Berliner.
“Receiving an isolated foreign minor for an internship requires some effort in terms of communication and tolerance. But it is also a way for us to build team spirit.” That of a winning team. “Unemployment does not exist for someone with a vocational degree in metalwork. Especially in the Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole area, with its numerous construction activities!”
