RAOUL foundation was founded to help teenagers raised in orphanages as well as young people with special needs to starting independent adult life.
We unite people, who believe in equal opportunities for work and personal development, and also people who are ready to create an inclusive social and business environment.Rabota-i
is RAOUL's first project that helps us to implement these ideas. It is based on the supported employment method by The European Union of Supported Employment (EUSE)
Rabota-i runs a supported employment center in Saint Petersburg that helps orphanage graduates and young people with special needs to find and retain jobs.
Based on successful experience of Rabota-i, RAOUL decided to adopt the supported employment method to other regions of Russia, so the eVP!-project
* was launched.
Organizations, which support disadvantaged youths, are the partners of eVP! They use the method to provide comprehensive psychological, social, legal and job coaching support. Employers, volunteers and job coaches provide support as long as it takes to achieve a sustainable positive result.
