« Enterprise in action »: training of underprivileged young people in entrepreneurship.

Junior Achievement is an Italian non-profit organization whose mission is to promote entrepreneurship and economics in schools in disadvantaged neighborhoods.

In 2009, the NGO set up the « Enterprise in action » program: training in entrepreneurship for 75 young people from schools in disadvantaged neighborhoods in the region of Apulia, in Southern Italy. This formation is given by teachers and private mentors, from the business world. It aims to teach the young people concepts of business management and upgrade their personal skills.

The Accor Foundation* supported this program in 2009.

* In 2013, the Accor Foundation became Solidarity Accor.
