12 weeks as a springboard to set goals for yourself and activate your potential

The Tremplin program was created with sports coaching in mind. It is piloted in each establishment by a dozen student volunteers who are the relayseach One on the field. Their commitment ensures a tailor-made deployment of the program while guaranteeing its quality.

It removes the initial obstacles for refugees/new arrivals to integrate in France: language and cultural barriers, lack of social connections, difficulty in building the right career in the country, soft skills and credibility.

The program is completely free.

Courses

Program classes take place for a maximum of 20 hours per week for 12 weeks. In addition to this main academic base, volunteer teams can lead extra bonus modules on the themes of their choice!

FLE (French as a Foreign Language) courses
