Teleperformance, a global leader in outsourced customer and citizen experience management, has made a donation to non-profit organization Life Project 4 Youth (LP4Y) to help prepare young Filipinos in capability building and in pursuing flourishing careers at Teleperformance.
The Php 5 million-donation demonstrates Teleperformance Philippines’ commitment in pursuing sustainable growth by investing in the country’s future: the Filipino youth.
“We are awarding the amount of five million pesos as sponsorship for 75 youth who will undergo the six months LP4Y program of professional integration and character formation,” said Jeffrey Johnson, Senior Vice President for Human Capital Resource Management, during the donation presentation held recently as part of the Teleperformance Global Executive Leadership visit in Manila.
The newly minted partnership with LP4Y is set to promote youth inclusion by providing skills training and mentorship opportunities to young people in underserved communities. Teleperformance employees will also participate in volunteer opportunities to help youth participants at LP4Y centers, including mentorship programs and contact center skills training.
LP4Y is a Paris-based organization present in 14 countries that is dedicated to the professional and social integration of young adults living in extreme poverty and exclusion. Their training centers focus on training young people to build their life project and develop, through experience, the life skills and professional know-how necessary for their sustainable integration. Currently, they have three training centers in Manila, one in Cebu, and one in Cagayan de Oro.
LP4Y Country Coordinator Albane d’ Harcourt, Project Lead for Partnerships and Fundraising Florent Besson, and Coach Rommel Gersava extended their organization’s gratitude together with six LP4Y Youth from Taguig and Payatas who also shared their stories of how LP4Y improved their lives.
“Created in 2009 in Manila, LP4Y expanded and is now operating on a worldwide scale. Our actions are all guided by a core value – we believe that all Youth have potential. That is why we are accompanying them to be entrepreneurs in their lives and shape their own futures,” shared LP4Y Coach & Project Leader for Partnership Florent Besson, who was present during the partnership signing.
Through its partnership with LP4Y, Teleperformance Philippines continues to advocate for this worthy cause to ensure that the youth from underserved communities gain better educational opportunities, as well as access to rewarding and life-long career prospects.
