Signatory of the Companies and Neighborhoods Charter, KPMG helps facilitate inclusion for students at the Pierre Mendès-France vocational high school by helping them find internships and jobs, discover professions, and experience the business world.
CoachingThe consulting company’s team provides constant support over the three-year high school program. “We offer students one workshop every quarter,” adds Corinne Forissier, a volunteer participant, retired from the company.
The feedback has been very positive. “Students wait for us to announce the next workshop,” observes Camille Mathiot. KPMG staff members enjoy this program very much. “They feel very involved,” points out Corinne Forissier. “Their contact with the high schools and young students is highly beneficial for them as well.”
“We work with them, but we don’t do things in their place. When there are challenges, we help students find solutions to overcome them.” Support workshop sessions are offered to interested students every Thursday afternoon.
