Job dans la Ville: awareness-raising and preparing young people from disadvantaged backgrounds for careers in the hospitality industries and event organisation.

Sport dans la Ville, set up in 1998, is the main association in France working to promote integration through sport. All of its programmes are designed to promote social and professional integration for the 4,500 young people who belong to the association. It has 32 sports centres located in the heart of sensitive neighbourhoods in various municipalities of the Rhône-Alpes and Ile-de-France regions.

In 2016, Sport dans la Ville opted to develop a specific project for the hospitality, event organisation and hotel industries, which are areas that appeal to the young people taking part in the Job dans la Ville programme.

Solidarity AccorHotels is supporting the accompaniment and supervision of 25 young people. The AccorHotels staff teams in Lyon have joined forces with this project and become involved by mentoring some of the young people, and accompanying them in the process of looking for a job (interviews, CVs, etc.) or by hosting them on training courses.
