L’Institut de l’Engagement singles out young people who show exceptional potential over a probationary period and mentors them into acquiring a skill by taking a course, finding a job or starting their own business, whatever their family background and social class, their schooling, or the place they may hail from.
Not unlike us, our partners generously offer their time, their skill, their network with a view to helping those young people overcome social and financial predicaments, disability and family-related impediments. We provide them with the means to give themselves a future that will up to their exceptional potential.
The partnership with Eight Advisory has afforded us the attention of experts more than qualified to analyse, challenge and cross-check information on which we base the assessment of our own effectiveness in our projects.
Thanks to Eight Advisory, our partners trust us to submit numbers that truly reflect our performance (as a matter of fact, our performance is outstanding) and our practices to live up the principles and values we uphold.
Over and beyond the expertise, we felt privileged to have Eight Advisory’s people by our side, involving themselves in helping, advising and mentoring our graduates in their projects. They even went as far as waging an epic fight on the indoor soccer pitch. The time and the fun shared on such occasions between the graduates and the partners of l’Institut de l’Engagement are of course priceless.
The shared values and the willingness to offer highlevel skills and experience underly Eight Advisory’s partnership with l’Institut and make it a much-valued asset of the Institut’s.
