EM Normandie has been engaged for 10 years in the Cordées de la réussite national outreach scheme, through its EDRESUP (Envie de Réussir ses Etudes dans le Supérieur) project. Sponsored by the Agence de la Cohésion Sociale et de l'Egalité des chances (ACSE) and the Ministries of National Education and Higher Education, EDRESUP is designed to coach secondary education pupils (Collèges and Lycées) towards Higher Education studies, to promote equal opportunity in education. This year, 200 young people from 8 Le Havre institutions have already benefitted from the support given by EM Normandie student members of the Association.
As a final event in the year, and in order to reward both tutors and lycéen participants for their respective commitment, a trip to Geneva will take place from 4 to 8 May. A wealth of entertainment and cultural events lie in store for them with visits of the Museums d'Histoire Naturelle, d'Ethnographie, d'Histoire des Sciences, de la Croix Rouge,and also the UNO, the SWATCH Cité du Temps, and the Quartier des Nations in Geneva. Also scheduled: a stopover at the Fromagerie du Mont Blanc and the Traditional Sallanches Market, as well as Chamonix and its famous Sea of Ice. As for their younger counterparts, they will visit the Vincennes Zoo in Paris with their tutors.
