Description: 

Commissioned by: Département de l’instruction publique, de la culture et du sport of the Canton of Geneva

The goal of the project mandated by the department of education of the Canton of Geneva was to understand the role which available orientation measures, including courses, play in the scholastic and professional integration of young immigrants. Moreover, the project aimed to identify systemic challenges facing such institutions, personnel at the institutions and the immigrants themselves. The project was particularly interested in the structures for post-obligatory schooling at ACPO (Service de l'Accueil du Postobligatoire), in the scholastic and professional progression of young immigrants (and their families), as well as in current practices in social, scholastic and professional integration.
