Self-Determination Support Programme for Adult Beneficiaries Exelixi Zois (Life Evolution)
doValue Greece, remaining consistent with its strategy and plan of Corporate Social Responsibility actions in the main pillars of Health, Environment and Society, continues to support initiatives and actions that give value to important social issues such as the support of vulnerable groups, the socialization of young people facing difficult family circumstances, the needy and other groups of our society that need support.
In this context, doValue decided to contribute from this year onwards to the project of the NGO "EXELIXI ZOIS" which aims to support and empower adolescents (16-17 years old) and young adults (18-25 years old) from closed child protection institutions, with the goal of preparing and achieving independent and dignified living and creative integration into society, including integration into the labour market.
Support of Exelixi Zois initiatives focuses on two axes:
The first one, support in terms of self-empowerment of adult beneficiaries (18-25 years old) and in particular the assumption of the annual costs of a beneficiary for issues related to:
- Support in finding accommodation, financial support for rent
- Financial support for studies
- Career counselling and psychosocial empowerment sessions
- Support for connection to the labour market
- Provision of guidance in everyday life
The second, empowerment of the professional identity of the adult beneficiaries. doValue too opened its door and created job opportunities for young people looking for their next day in society and their orientation towards professional rehabilitation. This initiative, among others, includes:
- Familiarization with the candidate selection process (interview, CV writing, etc.)
- Fixed-term employment
