An exceptional sustainable alliance! - GEEP Ecosys Inc. helps keep students away from dropping out through their engagement with the Réseau québécois des CFER



    MONTREAL, May 12 /CNW Telbec/ - GEEP Ecosys Inc. joins forces with the
Réseau québécois des Centres de formation en entreprise et récupération (CFER)
in order to motivate young students to persevere within the educational frame
while contributing to the protection of the environment.
    The CFER are schools with integrated companies which target young
Quebecers aged between 15 and 18 years old, who are challenged with learning
difficulties in school. While receiving training with respect to the recovery
and recycling of obsolete technology equipment, those students are enrolled in
an educational program combining traditional teaching methods with a
professional integration curriculum. This program gives them access to a
certificate.
    GEEP Ecosys Inc. plays a major role in this initiative developed by le
Réseau québécois des CFER. GEEP provides them with viable, ecological and
commercial options for their end-of-life products. In doing so, the company
enables these non-profit organizations to maximise their revenues. As part of
their training, the students will participate in the sorting out and
disassembly of equipment. GEEP Ecosys Inc. will, in its turn, complete the
process by managing efficiently and ecologically the end-of-life technology.
    Additionally, GEEP Ecosys Inc. will provide certain CFER students at the
end of their training, with the possibility of experiencing a supervised
industrial internship designed to receive hands-on experience and put
classroom theory into practice. This will facilitate their introduction to the
job market and enhance their knowledge with regards to sustainable
development.
    "These students represent our promising youth and it is our
responsibility to provide them with the necessary tools so they can become
both professional autonomous and engaged citizens who are conscious that their
quality-life also depends on their environment," confirms Bruce Hartley, Vice
President of GEEP Ecosys Inc.
    Such a partnership enables GEEP Ecosys Inc. to significantly expand its
network of e-colleX point of collection for technology equipment in Quebec in
light of an upcoming provincial regulation on this matter.
