Focus on Virlanie
Vocational training in the service sector for youths living in the street.

Virlanie is a Philippine non-profit organization whose primary aim is to offer young people living in the street the means of getting out this extreme poverty and its ill-treatment (drug, sexual exploitation). The Accor Foundation proposes to the young people not only an accommodation, a psychological and medical follow-up, educational, artistic and sports activities, but also a set of activities destined to improve their professional skills and their autonomy.
The YAP program (Young Adults Program) is aimed at enabling young people, from 15 to 22 years-old, living on the streets of Manila, to take responsibility for their personal and professional development and live an independent life. This training centre trains them in the services trades and helps them to fit into business life (thanks to general courses English, mathematics…) and professional guidance (CV, job-seeking workshops…).
With the help of the supervisory team, the young people put together a professional objectives plan at the end of the training course to companies that may be able to offer them a job.
This program is being carried out with 3 focuses:
- life-skills: to help the young people adopt behaviour compatible with the world of work, personal development;
- know-how: practical and professional skills they need, individualised accompaniment of teenagers in their training and career plans ;
- professional insertion: visits and placement of adolescents within businesses.
The Accor Foundation decided to back this programme in 2009. By January 2010, 45 youths had found full-time jobs and 26 had opened savings accounts, prompting this Foundation to support the YAP through 2010.
