Positive Planet France is a French association created in 2006 with the mission to fight against unemployment and exclusion. Among its actions, the association runs the "Jeunesse d'avenir" program to promote the integration of young people furthest from employment through entrepreneurship. The association now has 36 reception centers in the heart of priority neighborhoods favoring its action of proximity: more than 5 000 companies were created.

While the association’s Poissy branch, via its Jeunesse d’avenir programme, is hosting and accompanying around 15 young people throughout the process of setting up their own business, with a view to helping them integrate into the employment market on a long-term basis, it is also raising the awareness of more than 100 young people in the field of entrepreneurship.

In 2016, Solidarity AccorHotels supported this action by financing the training and accompaniment of these young people in the challenge of setting up their own business. Two members of AccorHotels staff from head-office in Paris are involved in the project and they organise one-off technical training courses designed to meet the needs of these young entrepreneurs as effectively as possible. 

In 2018, Solidarity AccorHotels continues to support these same young entrepreneurs, who are mentored individually to maximize their chances of realizing their business creation project.

With my colleagues involved, we are really proud to see the projects of these young entrepreneurs come to fruition and grateful to Solidarity AccorHotels for their financial and logistical support.
