The International Organization of La Francophonie (OIF) is an organization, a legal person under public international law, created in 1970, bringing together 88 states or governments in 2018. Its mission is to promote the French language and cultural and linguistic diversity, to promote peace, democracy and human rights, support education and research and develop cooperation.

By developing a program called IFJ (training and professional integration of young people), the OIF intends to respond to the need to develop technical and professional training to facilitate integration into the world of work.

Empowered by all of its Member States to act in the field of training, the OIF has developed an action that has been developed along two main axes: on the one hand, support for the development of public policies aimed at to link vocational training with the skills expected by the labor markets, on the other hand, in countries where these policies already exist, support in the development of training programs to promote their relevance to the labor market 'employment.
