The association

Founded in 1956, on the initiative of the “Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations”, the ALJT (The Young Workers Housing Association) has 300 employees and today manages 75 residences in the Ile-de-France region (social housing properties). With a 8 300 housing stock, the ALJT welcomes about 12 000 young persons each year.

The ALJT offers accompaniment services to the young persons its hosts, to encourage their autonomy .

In order to better respond to the needs of the youngsters according to their profiles, the ALJT developed a range of 3 complementary products: R’JT, R’JAM, and Home’R.

It also relies on its Associative Project, which aims to bring together the stakeholders and services of the organization around a single objective: “welcoming, housing, and supporting” young people so that they can succeed in their future projects.

ALJT is recognized as a socially useful solidarity enterprise, reflecting the relevance of the actions taken and the commitment of each of its stakeholders.

The public concerned

The residents are aged 18 to 32, and are experiencing professional mobility or are on the road to integration. They have accessed their first job (permanent contract, fixed-term contract or temporary work), they continue their studies under apprenticeship or professional internship contracts, they are trainees in vocational training or students.

They come from Ile-de-France, the provinces or abroad, and most of them have low incomes. Indeed, more than 60% of the residents earn less than the index-linked guaranteed minimum wage (SMIC), and nearly half of them have an income below the European poverty line. Consult the Activity Report.

Moreover, the ALJT offers support to the young workers having specific needs: persons with reduced mobility, beneficiaries of child welfare, single parents or unaccompanied foreign young adults.

The proposed accommodations

The ALJT offers fully furnished and equipped studios with all charges included (water, heating, electricity and services), before deduction of the APL (personalised housing aid). Indeed, all our homes are under agreement with the CAF (family allowances fund).

The surface area of the individual studios is between 12 and 40 m², with kitchenette, bathroom and toilets. A team of architects designs the furniture (storage spaces, beds, tables, etc.) adapted to the different surface areas. Learn more (link to FAQ The proposed accommodations).

In addition, the residents share different areas: recreation and fitness rooms, cyberspaces, laundry areas, libraries and gardens.

The accompaniment services

Dedicated teams within the residences help with administrative procedures; carry out collective actions and offer personalised accompaniments on several themes:

– Accommodation, to provide residential opportunities (
– Employment, to support career development
– Health, to facilitate access to healthcare
– Culture and citizenship, to promote social cohesion
