The environment in which we are born, grow up and then develop has a considerable impact on our health. Inequalities are created from childhood, emerge or are exacerbated in adolescence. They increase in adulthood depending on economic and social conditions, lifestyle or access to rights and healthcare. These decisive elements act on the health condition and life paths of us all.

Fondation CNP Assurances seeks to prevent risks in order to reduce social inequalities in health, according to three principles of action:

  • Spark innovative health, education and community-building solutions that are effective in protecting people and society over the long term
  • Build together with our partners risk prevention initiatives and health and well-being
  • Involve employees and support their engagement projects

In 2022, 75,724 young people took the path of equal health opportunities with the Foundation.
More than 378,000 students potentially assisted under the Ecolhuma programme thanks to the involvement of more than 11,400 teachers.

Actions to promote staying in school

With the non-profit Alliance for Education-United Way, we are developing a new "Employee engagement and Educational cities" project. Guidance and orientation is a factor that aggravates social inequalities for young people, and so the project aims to strike early, at the junior high stage, to give the underprivileged the tools they need to make informed, goal-appropriate decisions.

Partnerships in two areas:

  • Employee engagement with young people attending schools in priority areas
  • Coordination and closer monitoring of students under the Educational cities programmes.

Promoting health and the prevention of high-risk behaviour

We are supporting ADOSEN’s Coop-Addict project. Its goal is to help junior-high and high-school students gain the life skills they need to keep them addiction-free.
The project is built around a board game – part escape game and part role-play game – and aims to nip addictive behaviours in the bud through a reflexive, peer dialogue-based approach. 

For the school year 2022/2023, its ambition is to raise awareness among 35,000 students and train 600 educational staff.

Health education in priority areas

The CNP Assurances Foundation is supporting the project "Preventing stress and anxiety among high school students, reducing social inequalities in health" by the Ecolhuma association (ex-Synlab). 

This project aims to develop the well-being of high school students by strengthening the support capacities of their teachers. It relies on the ÊtrePROF platform to federate a community of volunteer teachers, acculturated to the issues of well-being at school.

For the 2022/2023 school year, the aim is to train 1,000 volunteer teachers in the challenges of well-being at secondary school in order to have an impact on 90,000 secondary school students in 4,000 classes.

Support for well-being, social and professional integration

The CNP Assurances Corporate Foundation supports the “Pass Bien-être” training program project catering chiefly for young people aged 16 to 25 with disabilities supported by AGIVR. It has set itself two objectives:

  • Giving young people the means to acquire and develop by themselves skills and behaviors conducive to their health and well-being
  • Developing the life skills critical for them to establish their place in society and the workplace

The aim for 2023 is to train 250 people with disabilities in the “Pass Bien-être" and to expand the project in conjunction with UNAPEI.

A helping hand for young talents in healthcare

Deux étudiants discutants dans un espace de co-working

The Foundation partners Fondation Marcel Bleustein-Blanchet pour la Vocation, which helps deserving young people fulfil their professional calling by awarding them a grant. Every year, the Vocation Prize enables these young people to complete their studies or start their working life. Within this framework, the Foundation supports young people training for medical and paramedical professions.

Evaluating tools for developing young people's psychosocial skills

The University of Bordeaux’s DAVANTAJ action research project represents a new departure for us.
This new type of project aims to provide answers to two questions:

  • To what extent and under what conditions do existing programmes educating young people about best health and well-being practices enable them to develop life skills, firstly, in a school environment and, secondly, under the Alliance pour l’éducation–United Way’s Défi Jeunesse programmes?
  • What scope is there for social media in this approach?
