Education and Training
In the last few years a large part of our resources dedicated to the community went to creating or 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.
The educational pathway proposed to schools is realized in collaboration with FEDUF (Foundation for Financial Education and Savings Plans); it includes various initiatives:
Events in schools – dedicated to primary and secondary schools, it offers financial education training;
Vivi la tua Banca (Experience your Bank), dedicated to secondary schools, it involves classroom training, visits to our offices and meetings with entrepreneurs and professionals;
Che impresa ragazzi (Way to go, guys!) –, dedicated to school and work programs for secondary schools
Through dialogue with local institutions and communities, the needs of many public schools emerged: Eternit removal, purchasing teaching materials and equipment, and providing playgrounds are just a few examples of how many emergencies there can be today within the school system and how significant collaboration between citizens, institutions and businesses can be.
Launched in 2018, today structural work or the purchase of teaching materials have been done in 80 schools thanks to our contribution.
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.
