The professional and social integration of excluded Youth living in extreme poverty presents an enormous challenge. And yet, the amazing and courageous journeys taken by nearly 3,000 Youth are a testimony to the LP4Y model developed over the past 10 years.
Integrating the professional world in local or international companies.
The positive influence that the Youth have on their friends and family who in turn become actors for change in their communities.
Social inclusion in a decent world (access to housing, education, health, legal paid work, freedom) for the Youth who manage to escape poverty and for those close to them.

Youth in training” are those currently following a program in one of the LP4Ys LPCs or in a Green Village. The number of Youth accompanied increased significantly in 2018 with the opening of 5 new centers and 8 programs. On the basis of 15-20 Youth per program, LP4Y will have accompanied more than 2,600 Youth by the end of 2019.
“Young Entrepreneurs” are at the final stage of the program. They are on their first long-term internship or first job. The Youth are accompanied by their coach and must prove their ability to find a job before graduating from the program.
“Integrated Youth” have completed their training and are invited to join the Stars Club, which is the LP4Y alumni network. They are employed or employable, having proven their ability to effectively seek and find decent work.
“No news” Youth have left the program without completing it and have lost contact with LP4Y. It is difficult to know their current status.
