In North America, FCA engages in a number of robust and
innovative programs in the communities where we operate.
Many of these initiatives benefited from the Volunteer Policy launched in 2012 for salaried workers in North America. A portion of the charitable activities is managed by
The Chrysler Foundation, which supports many charitable and community-based local and global organizations. U.S. and Canadian workers also continue to support the
United Way, a non-governmental organization which is committed to
improving living conditions in local communities, focusing in particular on education, financial stability and
Our commitment to promoting
educational and training programs is essential and substantial. The goal of these programs
is to offer
young people technical and personal skills to be more effective in
facing the career challenges in their future.
TechPro2 is the international educational project backed by FCA in association with the Salesian Professional Training Center. The project is geared toward young people from socially disadvantaged areas and gives them a chance to participate in a
specialized training program that will help them seek employment in the Group's technical assistance network.
First Robotics is another
program supported by the Group which
helps young high school students in the U.S. and Canada
hone their skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. By encouraging interest in these critical fields at a young age, the Group is helping develop the technical skills necessary for the workforce of the future.
