The TechPro² international project is celebrating its tenth year. Initially managed by Mopar – the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles aftersales brand for Services, Assistance, Customer Care, Genuine Parts and Authentic Accessories – in collaboration with CNOS-FAP (the National Centre for Salesian Works), TechPro² is a professional development programme with a social mission created to offer opportunities for young people who have completed their compulsory schooling often from socially disadvantaged backgrounds or problematic parts of town. The project was extended to industrial vehicles (including commercial vehicles and agricultural machinery, later joined under the banner of CNH Industrial) in 2011 with the introduction of specific courses that expanded the scope from the automotive industry to working machinery. After kicking off in Italy, today TechPro² is active in more than 60 schools worldwide, in Argentina, China, India and Ethiopia, to name a few, as well as Europe, in Poland and Italy, for instance. The latest country in order of time to join the TechPro² family is France, where seven schools that over the next three years will educate over 200 students have been operating since July.
