BGE Guyane helps people defining a professional project for themselves and provides guidance throughout the completion of it.

It strongly relates to empowering people with the lowest chances, including long-term unemployed people.

We help them finding a job as well as solving other personal issues related to social exclusion. Our activities : Job Market Integration

Our activities focus on the definition of a business project, mainly as a mean to become self-employed.

We provide guidance throughout the completion of it.

The target group is vastly composed of unemployed people with low levels of education, few professional achievements and neither background nor experience in business. Our activities : Entrepreneurship

Our target groups for Vocational Training are migrants as well as the local people with very basic educational background.

We aim at strengthening their language skill so that they can better write, speak, and express themselves.

We focus on key technical words required as part as their individual professional project, and the wider process of integration through work. Our activities : Vocational Training

Local Development Consultancy is all about strengthening the development projects that take place in our region, whether economic, social or environmental (and more likely all domains combined).

These are often multi-partners projects for which we can provide coordination, by building bridges with the key players and institutions we deal with in our three other branches. Our activities : Local Development Consultancy
