Renovation of the Albert Châtelet training restaurant
The Association Laïque pour l’Education, la Formation, la Prévention et l’Autonomie (ALEFPA), created in 1959, aims to assist, educate, train and rehabilitate young people in need. Today, it manages 98 educational centres around France.
ALEFPA manages several centres in northern France, including the Albert Châtelet centre which hosts 85 boys and offers six different professional training programmes (cooking, hospitality, automotive mechanics, woodworking, landscaping and gardening).
This centre has a training restaurant where 30 young people enrolled in cooking and hospitality programmes (CAP) can work on their skills. This restaurant needs renovations to create a setting that resembles a real restaurant to give students an authentic training experience.
In 2015, Solidarity Accor is financing the renovations to the restaurant.
This experience enables me to take part in a specific and growing project and to share my knowledge with both my teams and those of the charity. This project also allows me to meet people from other walks of life and share our cultures in order to help their development.
