Committed to helping young people into employment
Societe Generale supports projects helping young people with their entry into employment. Through the strong educational values present in sport and culture, Societe Generale and its partners accompany young people in their social integration.
The Societe Generale Corporate Foundation for Solidarity
Since it was founded in 2006, the aim of the Societe Generale Corporate Foundation for Solidarity has been to support public interest initiatives that help foster social solidarity. The Foundation has been active in the field of professional integration especially by helping young people to get into work and by fighting illiteracy. In 2015, the Societe Generale Foundation for Corporate Solidarity is widening its scope to include education. In 2015 and 2016, the Societe Generale Foundation has chosen to support charities that use sports and/or cultural activities to promote education and inclusion of people in difficulty.
Frédéric Oudéa President of the Societe Generale Corporate Foundation for Solidarity
In 2014, we supported 120 professional integration projects, which has always been the historic focus of the Foundation. In a period where social cohesion is being sorely tested, it is our duty to get involved early on by directly supporting young people from the beginning of their journey into society until they are at an age when they can begin to build their future.
