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:

  1. the promotion of the social economy amongst young people, particularly through the education system
  2. initiatives for young people in the social economy
  3. 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.
