Le Club Barbès
Compter sur demain has a partnership with Le Club Barbès, organization for tutoring and cultural exposure at the Goutte d'Or in the 18th arrondissement of Paris.
Today, there are 30 mid and high schoolers and students tutored by the volunteers of the organization. These youngsters participate to several cultural events and many trips in France and abroad to open their mind and broaden their perspective. To reinforce its actions the organization plans to recruit an employee and a volunteer from the Service civique system.
For four years, Compter sur demain is involved in the “Diplomates de la diversité” project, a cultural exchange programs between the Club Barbès’ youngsters and American students.
Dreams of future Grants
Compter sur demain launches at the end of the year 2016 a grant project for legal youngters from the social services or the judicial protection of juveniles.
When they turn 18 some of them can pretend to a “jeunes majeurs” contract for 3 months to a year and it can be renewed. However this state measure is becoming rare and totally disappeared in some departments. These youngsters apprehend the date they turn legal : their familial or shelter support ends brutally for many of them. Without a solid familial nor financial support they access to a fragile independence and are pushed into short-term trainings with a random financing. These early and forced independences can have tragic consequences : 20% of homeless people left the parental home before the age of 16, a proportion 6 times higher than in the rest of the population.
Compter sur demain wishes to help the projects of these young people by financing concrete actions: access to training (registration fees, purchase of supplies ...), to independence (driving license, equipment ...) and more generally, any need to favor a good start in life by letting them dream.
