Job readiness training


Job dans la Ville Program


Job dans la Ville, what's that?


In the communities where the Organization is engaged, employment is a real challenge.

In these areas, the inhabitants and in particular the young people are affaced with real difficulties of access to training and employment. One in three young people are at a level below the BEP-CAP.

Unequal access to diplomas and training combined with other difficulties (mobility, accommodation, family, etc.) excludes a growing number of young people.


Job dans la Ville was created in 2007, so that every young person can find the path to training and employment.

This free programme enables 1,630 young people to be supported throughout the year in their career guidance and in their access to training or employment.



Job dans la Ville is co-financed by the European Social Fund
as part of the 2014-2020 National Operational Programme "Employment and Inclusion".

For who?


For all young people, from 14 years old, registered in our sports programs or near our sports centers wishing to reflect on their professional project and discover the range of possibilities.


Through its local action, through its privileged links with community support and corporations, Sport dans la Ville wishes to give the best chances of success to the greatest number of young people in their professional integration path.


How to register for the program?


Each young person from the areas where Sport dans la Ville operates can benefit from the support of the Job dans la Ville program. To do so, contact the Professional Development Coach or be preregistered for sports sessions at one of the 46 sports centers of Sport dans la Ville.


For young people who have dropped out of school, who have not completed the high school level of education, or have difficulty integrating, it is possible to join the specific curriculum called “ Passe Décisive ”.

Because every action carried out must lead to a result, at Sport dans la Ville the impact of the programs is measured through various studies conducted by independent firms.

Young people are talking about it


19 years old

I was hesitating about my option until the day before I registered. Today I'm a chemistry undergraduate and I LOVE it! With Sport dans la Ville, I gained confidence in myself and in my choices.


20 years

This program allowed me to open up to others, to be more comfortable. Before I was shy, now I don't have any relationship problems. Besides, I was able to start building a network.
