Ideally located in the canton of Vaud, close to more than a hundred schools, Oîdalis supports young people in their search for experience and information about the professional world.
The fusion of workshops (Oîda) and events (Alis) result in Oîdalis, a network of professionals united by the ambition to pass on to the younger generation.
« What are you going to do when you grow up? » The answer to this question can vary greatly depending on the age at which you are asked.
Do you remember what you wanted to do when you were 7 years old? Plutôt astronautes ou pilote ? Maître(sse) ou vétérinaire ? Peut-être grand(e) cuisinier(ière) ou le/la meilleur(e) des pompiers ? Et parfois un jour différent de la semaine pour se rêver dans chacun de ces corps de métier.
Then comes the time to make a choice, but which path to follow when so many are possible? How can we choose so early something important that will follow us until so late in life?
At Oîdalis, we believe that this decision is one of the most important choices we are led to make in life. Like the cake that can be precisely described on a menu, but is only truly appreciated at the first bite, passions must be tasted in order to truly reveal themselves.
We have therefore gathered for you people who are passionate about their profession and who are eager to share their passion. We accompany them in order to create educational, fun and entertaining content so that you can effectively discover the challenges of their activity and perhaps reveal hidden vocations. We help you develop your network and discover the path to your dreams too quickly abandoned.
Whether it is during one of our workshops or events, in companies or directly in schools, to share your passion or to research it, we create the environment allowing you to focus on discovery and curiosity.
At Oîdalis, we all speak only one language, that of the passionate.
