The start of a new adventure ...

An association organised under the law 1901, the Centre du Logement des Jeunes Travailleurs (CLJT) - Lodging centre for young working persons), in their Foyer Jeunes Travailleurs (FJT) -(Young working person’s residence) or in Student Residences, offers social lodgings for young men and women with modest incomes, without discrimination by origin, culture, social or professional standing, with a fair balance between the public received: employees, students, interns, apprentices or sandwich students, young people placed by Children’s Services or by way or other associations.

The establishments of the CLJT are rich in diversity of the profiles of the young people hosted. It is an extraordinary meeting place, a “life experience” as the residents themselves like to describe their stay.

Our establishments of La Vigie and Bures-sur-Yvette also have a residence especially reserved for students.

Social assistance
Social assistance

2nd mission, the FJTs participate in the independence and social, civic or professional insertion of your people into society.  This takes on three complementary forms:

  • personalised assistance adapted to the resident’s situation, their life history and their personal goals (lodging, employment, training, health, etc.)
  • educational common activities, mainly in the form of workshops and encounters with the goal of informing, orienting, giving young people the tools and keys to allow them to become independent in terms of lodging, employment, training, health, culture, citizenship and so on ...
  • fun common activities, much valued by the association, which contribute to the spirit of friendship which reigns in the residences.  It helps to create and promote social bonds and contribute to making the residence a pleasant and fulfilling home for each and everyone.
