“Ehop solidaire pour l’emploi”, a socially-responsible carpooling service
The “Ehop solidaire pour l’emploi” project provides a new solution to individuals in integration programmes. The idea is to call on commuters driving to work in individual vehicles to carpool on a solidarity basis with individuals returning to the professional world.
The project requires extensive communication work and the establishment of a “community of Ehop carpoolers” able to mobilise rapidly. Carpoolers commit to modifying their regular commute for a given period (for example, a trial period) as a favour to requesting individuals.
The beneficiaries include individuals receiving RSA welfare benefit, job seekers, young people supported by Mission Locale structures, and people backed by the Maison de l’Emploi, de l’Information et de la Formation du Pays de Rennes (MEIF, an employment, information and training centre).
The aim is to set up a solidarity-based community of 400 people with vehicles in the first year.
As of 2012, 48% and 55% of the individuals backed respectively by the MEIF and the Mission Locale did not have a driving licence. These structures annually deal with 7,400 people a year that could benefit from the service as part of their return to work or training.share this project
