Call for Partners - Supporting the education and integration of young people
Through this Call for Partners initiated in 2020, the aim is to help the most vulnerable and to support, in particular, initiatives in favor of education and youth integration. A local version of the Call for Partners has been launched, making the South-West the first pilot region to test the scheme. A dedicated platform was created. In 2020, two partners were selected: AJIR and REBONDS.
How does it work?
Who can apply as a "partner"? All organizations eligible for sponsorship, created at least two years ago, whose requested support for the project does not exceed 30% of its total operating budget. Associations whose projects are eligible will be able to benefit from financial support, implementation assistance, expertise and the mobilization of volunteer staff thanks to the Action! Program.

Becoming a partner of the Total Foundation is not just about receiving financial support to set up or implement a project. We also encourage our employees to commit up to three to their working days a year to solidarity missions through the Action! program. The Foundation can also offer support via web-based training courses such as "Succeeding in your digital transformation: where to start? "

"From today on, associations must think about looking for private funds to launch their projects and not just for public subsidies. They also need support to ensure their sustainability. The Total Foundation call for partners is a local commitment in addition to the CSTJF’s CSR contributions in our labor pool. "From today on, associations must think about looking for private funds to launch their projects and not just for public subsidies. They also need support to ensure their sustainability. The Total Foundation's call for partners is a local commitment that complements the CSTJF's involvement in CSR in our labor pool. As a jury member, I appreciated the variety of sectors of activity of the associations that proposed education and integration projects for our young people: agriculture, sports, science, music, etc. I was even able to discover some of them. This shows the richness of our local fabric and the commitment of its actors".
In 2020, two partners selected in the Southwest
In Pau, AJIR supports the integration of migrant minors through apprenticeships thanks to its network of apprentice training centers (CFA) and local companies. In light of the crisis, the association wants to continue its administrative, educational and social support for young people, and to allow the most affected companies to secure the hiring of apprentices until they graduate.
Rebonds! educators often offer rugby activities in schools, after-school programs and specialized facilities in the Toulouse region. During these activities, they may identify certain young people who are in a vulnerable situation. The association then offers them integration into a rugby club and social follow-up to help them build their academic and professional orientation.
