Education and Training
In the last few years we invested in our young people, realizing and supporting projects dedicated to career advice, professional training and experience and knowledge sharing.
Financial education in schools
Launched in 2018, this project aims to make students more familiar with topics concerning finance, economics and the world of work through the support of professionals and testimonials.
We carry out financial awareness initiatives both with partners such as Feduf (the Foundation for Financial Education and Savings) and Taxi 1729 and thanks to our colleagues in the commercial network and specialist departments.We carry out financial awareness initiatives both with partners such as Feduf (the Foundation for Financial Education and Savings) and Taxi 1729 and thanks to our colleagues in the commercial network and specialist structures.
Starting from dialogue and meetings with local institutions and communities, we have intercepted the needs of many public schools in the area: from the removal of eternit, to the purchase of teaching materials and tools, from the preparation of play spaces to technologies for distance learning.
Training for disadvantaged young people
It is a project created by the collaboration with CELAV (Centro di Mediazione al Lavoro del Comune di Milano – Work Mediation Center of the Municipality of Milan) to promote a meeting point between people and businesses. Over the years the project welcomed different realities of the entrepreneurial and non-profit world, all with the aim of promoting the insertion into the world of work of young people in a disadvantaged situation and offering training aimed at placement in companies that need specialized staff.
This virtuous circle of participants who share resources and skills, has proven to be particularly effective for a process of recovery and promotion of personal and professional skills, improving participants’ integration and autonomy.
In the three-year period (2016-2019), thanks also to the involvement of our Development and Training department, we helped around 200 young people enter the world of work finding them positions requiring workers specialised in mechanics, baking, pastry-making, coffee and fish mongering. We hope to resume this activity soon, after the temporary suspension of activity in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
