The Jeun’ESS initiative was launched in France in June 2011 as a public-private partnership between a number of ministries and six enterprises and foundations from the social economy sector. It is based on three pillars:
- the promotion of the social economy amongst young people, particularly through the education system
- initiatives for young people in the social economy
- the integration of young people in the enterprises of the social economy
A budget of €1.3 million was allocated for the years 2010 and 2011. Another €600,000 has been committed until the end of 2013.
