The IDEBRA included in its focus the training for the logistics area. In partnership with Senac, the first class started in May this year with 31 students coming from the Beira Mar Community and nearby neighborhoods, in the city of Duque de Caxias, Rio de Janeiro.

The pedagogical content, divided into social formation training classes (100h) and vocational training classes (200h), addresses citizenship, leads to the job market and qualifies the youngsters in the Management area (Logistics Operations Assistant).
According to Eduardo Pane, Executive Manager of IDEBRA, this proposal emerged from the need to enhance the resources invested in results
that could create greater positive impact on the lives of the youth of Duque de Caxias in a situation of social vulnerability, whose priority is to qualify to get their first job. IDEBRA, which is an institution maintained by the company ID Logistics, included in its planning training for operations in the area, which meets the needs of the market.
According to Edson Carrillo, vice president of Abralog, Brazilian Association of Logistics, two factors are important in the composition of this scenario. Technological developments in distribution centers, which requires increased training of employees. He also trained the competition for these workers by companies, which establishes a severe scenario of turnover.
The intent of ID Logistics is to absorb most of this labor, but the organization also articulates along with Senac, the placement of these young people into the market.
According to Nicolas Derouin, CEO of IDEBRA in the early years of the organization they were developed some projects in Duque de Caxias, keeping the sustainable principles of social responsibility, helping to integrate young people into society.

Also according to the institution manager, the prospects for the project could not be better, as it has the potential to increase the number of project spaces for up to 120 young people.
