Our integration mission
Genèveroule for integration
Socio-professional integration is an integral part of all the activities developed by the Genèveroule association. With a wide variety of profiles, origins and statuses, the employees of Genèveroule contribute to the influence of the association with their skills, their commitment and their experience.
Genèveroule’s strategy is based on three axes : professional practice, training and integration advice. We are convinced that the combination of these three axes allows each beneficiary to progress in their integration process. Obtaining a work certificate, a certificate of competence and a revised and ready-to-use application file all contribute to developing a person’s ability to achieve their integration goal.
Genèveroule’s integration practices are organised in close collaboration with the Cantonal Employment Office, the Hospice General, the Bureau for the Integration of Foreigners and Geneva’s institutions active in integration.

Genèveroule, winner of the
“Un job pour les jeunes” price
It is with great emotion, recognition and pride that Genèveroule received in November 2021 the prize “Un job pour les jeunes” from the Société genevoise d’utilité publique.
This prize is awarded each year to an institution that works concretely for the employment of young people. In 2021, Genèveroule welcomed more than 70 young people for apprenticeships, pre-apprenticeships, student jobs or observation and discovery placements. This award encourages us to continue our work in this direction and to give maximum opportunities to the new generations!
