Timberland mentors youth in France through Unis-Cite

As the longstanding partner of Unis-Cité since its inception in 1995, Timberland France has supported many activities such as supporting projects, organization of an art sale for the association and so on.

Modeled on City Year, Unis-Cité corps members impact their communities by partnering with existing civic organizations to meet critical needs, while receiving citizenship and professional training. Timberland employees mentor corps members and create a range of professional development opportunities. The company and its employees receive each year a dozen volunteers in the “Timberland Academy”: a journey to discover Timberland’s professions through several half days of formal meetings with employees of different departments of the company. The partnership continues today through the development of sponsorship of competence among employees and volunteers, and participation in solidarity projects.
