Konexio x Global Shapers Paris

The Paris Hub is partnering with Konexio, a nonprofit organization with the mission to create a streamlined path to employment for refugees and other vulnerable youth through digital training and work placements. The project aims to organize professional development workshops that empower participants to gain essential skills and better mastery of the social codes needed to enter the labor market.

The aim of the project is two-fold:

1) To organize soft skill training workshops that have previously been conducted with Konexio’s partners (i.e. CV writing workshop)

2) To develop new workshops on subjects ranging from cross-cultural communication to project management that will further bolster participants' soft skills and workforce readiness. Shapers lead, organize, and become coaches for the workshop participants, fostering greater connections and community-building that enriches the experience for both mentors and mentees.
