Bosch is committed to an unique initiative to fight youth unemployment in Italy

Daniele Massuro won a soccer world cup with the Italian national team in 1982, was a four-time champion in the Italian soccer league, and has played for a two-time Champions League-winning team. He is thus a role model for Italian youth and is now using his fame for a good cause: to talk about work with young people. With the “Allenarsi per il Futuro“ (Preparing for the Future) program, the professional athlete gives presentations in schools across the country. The project is a joint initiative between Bosch and the Ranstad temp agency. For three years now, the initiative has addressed the issue of high youth unemployment in Italy, which stood at 35.5 percent in July 2017. In contrast, only 6.5 percent of young people in Germany are jobless.

“Allenarsi per il Futuro” aims to help by supporting young people in the transition period between school and working life. To this end, the project offers advice and internships at companies. Last year, 700 young people completed internships, and 350 have already begun this year. Supporters from the world of professional sport help convey the message: “ultimately, anyone who never gives up on their dream is a winner,“ says Roberto Zecchino, the head of HR for Bosch in southern Europe, about the cooperation with personalities like Daniele Massaro. “This is the idea that we want to pass on to young people: having a dream is one thing, but you also have to work hard to make that dream come true.”

“Allenarsi per il Futuro“ is one of many educational projects that are part of the Bosch apprenticeship scheme in southern Europe. The company is committed to fighting youth unemployment in countries such as Italy and Spain, where 38.6 percent of young people are currently unemployed. In light of this, and against the backdrop of positive feedback about the program, “Prepare for the future” has also been running in Spain since 2016. Moreover, over the past three years, Bosch has created 175 apprenticeship spots for young people from Italy, Portugal, and Spain.
