TotalEnergies Foundation’s Action! program gives all employees an opportunity to volunteer in community programs for up to three workdays each year. More than 7,500 employees have participated in more than 10,000 initiatives with partner non-profits in more than 70 countries since Action! was launched in 2018.
“Entering the workforce is a major change in a person's life. I wanted to do something useful with Jeunes@Work, a non-profit that helps students and young graduates succeed in the job market. I gave five young people from a variety of backgrounds advice on presenting their educational and job history, emphasizing their strengths and making the connection between their experience and a company’s expectations. It was a good way for me to combine my profession – human resources – and my desire to contribute outside of work.”

In 2019, in France, some 90,000 young people (or 10%) left school without receiving their diploma. At the same time, 200,000 jobs were vacant in industry.
To resolve this contradiction, TotalEnergies Foundation created L’Industreet, a campus for the industry professions of tomorrow. Located in Stains, north of Paris, the campus opened in late 2020 and will train around 200 learners, aged 18 to 25, free of tuition in 2021. In 2022, 400 students will join the school, half of them young women.
