The Labor-Work project, conceived and supported by Ente Cassa di Risparmio di Firenze, was designed as a process of socialisation and job placement targeted at unemployed young people, people with education and training deficiencies, persons with psycho-physical disabilities and immigrants. The age bracket involved is that of young people aged between 18 and 29 resident in the Municipality of Florence. A period of orientation and training in the form of job-shadowing, which provides the participants with skills, techniques and methods to be concretely applied in the educational and working activities, is followed up with a training course of 60 hours and an internship in a business lasting 3 months.
The primary objective is to offer direct support to young people at high risk of social exclusion. Through highly-qualified personnel, the companies involved will offer reception, training and instruction conceived to offer disadvantaged young people orientation itineraries aimed at enhanced job placement.
Major goals have already been reached in the past through the “Si può fare-iwork” project.
