On 15 October 2014, the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation awarded its first Antoine de Saint-Exupéry grants to 8 young laureates of the Institut du Service Civique (Institute of Civic Service) at its annual evening reception dedicated to its partners.
During this event, the laureates presented their projects in the presence of Olivier d’Agay, Delegate General of the Foundation, who spotted in them several qualities dear to his famous great-uncle: responsibility, sharing, sense of effort, self-sacrifice and a taste for adventure.
Established in 2012 at the instigation of Martin Hirsch, this pioneering Institute aims to train enlightened managers, bearers of values of commitment and citizenship. Since its creation, 600 young volunteers, who stood out on community interest missions during their civic service, have been able to benefit from the support of the Institute to carry out their educational and professional projects.
Committed to equal opportunity, the Antoine de Saint-Exupéry Youth Foundation has helped and supported this civic and collective initiative in favour of French youth by becoming a partner of the Institut du Service Civique ever since its creation.
