1. Creation of smart sites: “Espace Dassault”
After funding the creation of a first smart site on the association’s Lyon Sports Campus, the Group provided support for the Sport dans la Ville (Jobs in the City) digital center in Pantin, on the outskirts of Paris. This coworking space is dedicated to digital professions and fully equipped with computers, tablets, 3D printers and virtual reality headsets. It accommodates the 1,600 young people participating in the “Job dans la Ville” orientation and professional integration program.
2. Development of a learning support program
The current health crisis is severely exacerbating learning inequalities. To address this challenge, in September 2020 Dassault Group helped Sport dans la Ville launch a new learning support program. Thanks to this initiative, more than 200 junior high school students receive enhanced tutoring, in particular thanks to a loan of digital equipment for daily distance learning.
3. Creation of a Vacation and Training Center
In 2021, Sport dans la Ville plans to launch construction of a Vacation and Training Center. Dassault Group will fund digital facilities for this new project, which will host more than 1,000 young people every year.
Sport dans la Ville is setting an original and constructive example of how to overcome the difficulties facing French society. Creative energy is the common link between Dassault Group and these young people, be they schoolchildren, university students or aspiring entrepreneurs. We are all united in a shared ambition: to move onward and upward, together.
