The development of recent years in Morocco has been concentrated in certain urban regions and has benefitted certain social groups. In particular, young people from the northern regions of the country are limited when accessing employment opportunities, increasing social and economic inequality.
The project fights school drop-out and the social exclusion of young people by promoting a model that has two main stages.
A first in which the young person takes basic knowledge in core subjects (French, Arabic, mathematics and language) and in parallel a professional initiation course where he receives the main knowledge about the branch of vocational training he has selected.
A second stage in which the young person is in vocational training by learning and receives work orientation. At this stage they learn a profession and we help them, so that they can combine training with an internship.
Transversally, at both stages, they receive social work support and receive classes on skills that will not only help them in their work, but also in their lives. This training focuses on what we call life skills.
We believe that these young people should have the opportunity to find a job, to get out of the poverty they find themselves in and help their families. But this happens because they can access quality training and prepare them for future years. From CODESPA we will work with local associations, establish partnerships with public and private entities in the field of training and labour insertion, to make this training a tool against poverty in Morocco.
