The School4Life project kicks off in Italy
The School4Life project coordinated by Elis, a non-profit training center, and by eleven large Italian companies to combat early dropout rates of high school students is underway throughout Italy. In addition to the Ernesto Illy Foundation, the project involves Ansaldo Energia, Banco Bpm, Enel, Eni, Fincantieri, Intesa Sanpaolo, Leonardo, Poste Italiane, UniCredit and the Snam Foundation.
School4Life is based on the collaboration between companies and schools (over 600 organizations currently involved in Italy) and provides guidance activities aimed at young people at risk of dropping out, as well as initiatives to support families and teachers. The two-year project aims to involve a total of 15,000 students throughout the country, with particular attention to the regions where the phenomenon is most widespread.
