Motivation: Boost from the reality of companies.
Help young people find their vocation and involve your workers in a solidarity action!
The Coach Project is a corporate volunteering initiative aimed at guiding and motivating socially vulnerable youth who have dropped out of school.
It targets socially responsible companies that want to involve their staff in a specific solidarity initiative during a specified period of time and with guaranteed results.
To this end, we train corporate volunteers in coaching and mentoring techniques so that they can introduce the young people who are enrolled in basic vocational training to the business world from the inside, help them discover their calling and, most of all, motivate them to continue their education.
The volunteers are trained in a technique that can be applied in their everyday lives and also get to know young people from whom they can learn a lot. This encourages volunteers to activate new intergenerational and intercultural communication skills, attention to diversity, leadership, social commitment …
Along 6 sessions corporate volunteers accompany young people in their experience of discovering the world of the company, introducing them to corporate colleagues and enhancing teamwork.

The #CoachExit Project through the eyes of the participants
“The idea of participating in the Coach Exit project scared me at the beggining. I did not think I would have many things in common with someone way older than me so I thought the relationship would be diifficult. Nevertheless, once I started knowing my mentee I can only say it has been the best experience I could have had. She was really nice to me, helped me to get to know better the laboral market and she made me realise what I really want in the future”.
“It has been more than five years now that we collaborate with Fundación Exit and initatives like the Coach Project is really interesting for the center. I believe is crucial to take part in these initiatives as they help students to improve their self-esteem and the interest that in many cases they lost before.
It is fantastic the fact of having people who are working in a company close to them because it helps their motivation to go back to study in a focused manner”.
“My experience with the Coach Exit project meant a lot of personal and professional growth. I learned how to patiently listen and how to cheer young people and make them able to become better. It has been like opnening a window to the future and put the first seed for something that is definetely going to grow.
The opportunity to participate in this project left a print both personally and professionally, especially in terms of
