An essential transformation for the rest of his professional career. “The structure is suitable for young people who only have to pay a fee,” added director Odil Dubroka. They don’t have to worry about electricity, gas and other rental requirements.

A definite advantage when starting in life or wanting to come back. Because FJT not only offers a housing solution for these young adults, but and above all supports the integration process or the development of a project.

A personal prosperity

Anaïs Arnau also experienced the adventure of Foyer Jeunes Travailleurs. “I am 24 years old and after the divorce, I was looking for a place to live. I was working in Carrefour then. The social worker then recommended FJT to me. A

Ten years later, the journey of young workers is the same. Issayatou, a 20-year-old electrician, is completing his two-year apprenticeship. “I’ll probably leave FTJ in early July and enter BTS in Claremont-Ferrand,” he said. Here again, the team will support him in his efforts to find a company related to new housing and his work-study. In a decade, Foyer Jeunes Travailleurs has thus helped “735 adults,” the director counts.


“At the moment, with 57 residents, the occupancy rate is almost 100%. And if the previous stay was 6 to 7 months, today it’s about a year. “

In addition, many of them will return to Issoire on Saturday, July 2, to celebrate the FJT’s tenth anniversary and, together, to evoke common memories.

Anniversary. On Saturday, July 2, from 2 to 6 p.m., FJT is open to the public. The team plans an escape game, a graffiti workshop, a game with a toy library, and a large joint game imagined by the animators of Mason des Jones. Concerts with rapper Klein are also scheduled for 3:30 p.m., followed by orchestra D’Harmoni inter-communal D’Isoar and Yaka Cobina’s musicians and dancers. Finally, a cake made by the members of the Integration Project will be tasted together (free admission).
