From amateurism to professionalism
Companies are generally closed to inexperienced young people and offer very few opportunities, including internships. Moreover, one needs to submit applications months or even years in advance, and wait for very long periods of time, after which it is not certain that the outcome will be favourable. “Quiet, we don’t want you, you amateurs.” “No one enters our company unless they have professional experience.”
As no training institution (University and Grande Ecole) offers this experience, the impact of a condition on the lives of young graduates or not is that they have no opportunity to access a first job.
World Dynamics of Young People (WDYP) innovates with the novel concept of a vocational traning-oriented organization. Those responsible assert with confidence that “we are training in professional experience.”
The iconoclastic concept of a VOCATIONAL TRAINING-ORIENTED ORGANIZATION breaks with all the insidious practices of the world of work. The placement of young people in professional frameworks or even in a company situation and the negotiation of a work certificate at the end of their stay in the workplace, is part of the perspective of increasing their chances of finding a job. The successful passing of a volunteer through an institution can have a positive influence on those in charge of the institution who are happy to keep him or her in a real job with a work contract.
Purpose: bringing young people together in the world of work can change the order of things in the world and make the young person a real actor of change.
…Promote the participation and empowerment of young people for development based on civic values and the rule of law.
World Dynamics of Young People (WDYP) aims to mobilize young people for the full realization of their potential at the local level, the promotion of integrity and the development of national sentiment.
This general mandate is expressed as a mission to :
– strengthening, supporting and enhancing the skills of young people
– promoting the socio-political and moral leadership of young people
– facilitating of volunteering and partnership interaction among young people
