Dauphine Tremplin Refugee Program – the university mobilizes to assist refugees

15.01.2018

2018 marks the launch of a Dauphine initiative to train and foster the socio-professional integration of refugees in France. Under the leadership of the university’s Office of the President, the project is yet another example of Dauphine’s social and community engagement. The initiative is implemented under a partnership agreement with Wintegreat.

The Tremplin program will welcome some 20 refugees and includes training, coaching and mentorship.

Training

 

  • Intensive French as a Foreign Language classes
  • English language classes
  • 10 days of theme-based Entrepreneurship classes taught by Dauphine’s department of Executive Education for program participants with an entrepreneurial project

 

Coaching and Mentorship

Each program participant benefits from the individual support of a coach/buddy tandem. “Buddies” are Dauphine students or staff who accompany program participants and help them acquire the cultural and social skills they need to function and feel comfortable in their new country. Introducing participants to mentors, a Dauphine Alumnus for example, will give participants a better understanding of the French workplace, help them begin building professional relationships, and develop a professional project.

The program is resolutely collective and as such depends on support from all members of the Paris-Dauphine Community: students, staff, faculty, researchers, alumni, and corporate partners.

If you would like to participate – don’t wait – JOINS US TODAY!
