“Supervised driving” as a passport to employment
Mission locale du bassin d’emploi de Rennes
The aim of the “supervised driving” project conducted by La Mission Locale with the association AGIRabcd is to enable young people aged between 18 and 25 to obtain a driving licence in order to integrate into the labour market more easily ; develop a sense of citizenship through constructive inter-generational relations
AGIRabcd members taking part in this initiative play the role usually occupied by a family member. Most of the volunteers accompanying the project are retired people. The role of the volunteer, looking beyond the driving and highway code lessons provided by professionals, is to drive at least 1,000 kilometres with a learner driver.
This initiative has many advantages, beyond helping young people acquire a driving licence:
- active, long-term personal contacts with young people in difficulty;
- road safety education;
- helping young drivers gain a command of their environment ;
- helping young people to behave as responsible citizens.
Thanks to the Foundation, La Mission Locale received a vehicle used in the driving experience initiative.share this project
