Training and Employment

Enhancing the young human capital

The Nation’s youth constitutes its wealth. Training young people and giving them the means to fulfill themselves now, means preparing them for tomorrow’s challenges. The Foundation has developed a multi-pronged approach to assisting youth from underprivileged rural backgrounds, including access to learning and training, improving qualification levels and promoting self-employment.


Training, a crucial lever for access to employment

As a key driver of development, Moroccan youth is a major concern for the Foundation. Dropping out of school, lack of qualifications, difficult socio-economic conditions, unequal opportunities, etc., the risk of marginalization of young people are rife, particularly among the poor.

The Foundation has focused its strategy on bolstering young people's capacities to succeed their own socio-professional integration. Implemented in collaboration with the Office of Vocational Training and Employment Promotion and a number of ministries (Agriculture, Handicraft ...), this strategy builds on an extensive program involving training and professional qualificationcenters. Its purpose is to integrate young people and equip them with skills suitedto the needs of the labor market.
Initially geared towards multi-skill training in local occupations, the training approach has shifted towards supporting national sector-specific strategies with a strong employment potential.

The Foundation is also committed to helping young people with disabilities, who are often excluded from mainstream circuits. It has established specific training facilities and programs.

These include mixed-gender multidisciplinary centers open to all young people and which are also available to the physically disabled. The Mohammed VI National Centre for the Disabled, for its part, offers training for the mentally disabled in suitable occupations such as catering, agricultural production and room service.

Our young people look forward to the right conditions that will help them achieve their personal fulfillment and shoulder their responsibilities; they legitimately aspire to better social and professional integration, especially through the creation of more jobs.

Promoting professional autonomy through self-employment

Once skills are acquired, the journey leading to a first job experience starts. To promote young people's access to employment and financial autonomy, the Foundation adopted an approach based on multifaceted support. It involves two main support mechanisms, which supplement the qualification program.

This integration-through-apprenticeship approach is applied at qualification and training centers in handicraft trades. Young apprentices are directly integrated into the workshops of the master craftsmen, who arein charge of the training. This approach makes it possible to ensure continuity of these trades, as well astransfer of know-how.

The Foundation also promotes self-employment by facilitating access tomarket. It encourages entrepreneurship among graduates of training centers. The Foundation also supports youth in the process of starting small income-generating activities. Support includes coaching of project owners, project development and the financing of equipment needed to start activities. This approach is applied in particular at the Center for Very Small Solidarity-Based Enterprises of Casablanca and through the Integration through Economic Activity Program.
