On Wednesday June 13th, GlobalGiving is hosting a Bonus Day! If you donate to 'Job Training and Education for Argentine Youth' Project. on Wednesday, Global Giving will match your donation by 30%, 40% or 50% increasing your impact!
As you can imagine, this is a wonderful opportunity for Cimientos to help fund our Project which will provide poor Argentine youth who graduated high-school and Cimientos programs with good job opportunities, employment tools and education resources so they can obtain jobs, receive a higher education and escape poverty.
If you want to make another contribution to our cause, Wednesday would be a perfect day. Another huge help would be just spreading the word with your friends and family about our project - share the link on your blogs or social networks, use the tell-a-friend feature on the project page to email your network, or just bring us up in conversation. This could increase our donors as well as our possibilities of reaching more poor Argentine youth!
Thank you again for all you have done yourself to help this cause and please write to us if you would like to receive any other information about our work.

In these last few months, the Cimientos Graduate Network has shared two breakfasts with our young participants - one with graduates who are studying and another with graduates who are working. It was a very enriching experience both for the graduates as well as the participating members of the Cimientos team.
The objective of the breakfasts was to identify the difficulties graduates confront as they begin to work or to study in order to continue improving the service we provide them. We also wanted to provide a venue for the graduates to share their experiences and learn from each other. At both breakfasts participation was very animated, and as a result we were able to determine some of the most compelling needs that characterize the moment of leaving high school.
We also wanted to tell you that in Argentina we celebrate Labor Day on May 1st; your contribution will give more young Argentines a reason to celebrate this holiday!
The Cimientos Team
En estos últimos meses la Red de Egresados de Cimientos ha compartido dos desayunos con los jóvenes participantes de la Red; uno con egresados que estudian y otro con egresados que trabajan. ¡Fue una experiencia muy enriquecedora tanto para los egresados como para los miembros de del equipo de Cimientos que participaron!
Los objetivos de los desayunos eran detectar cuales son las dificultades con las que se enfrentan los egresados al empezar a trabajar o estudiar para poder seguir mejorando las ofertas que les ofrecemos. El otro objetivo era que los egresados intercambien experiencias entre ellos para aprender de las vivencias de los otros. En ambos desayunos la participación de los chicos fue muy activa, razón por lo cual pudimos divisar algunas de las necesidades más relevantes a la hora de salir de la escuela secundaria.
Además queríamos contarles que en Argentina el primero de mayo festejamos el día del Trabajador ¡Tu aporte puede ayudar a que más jóvenes argentinos puedan festejar el día del Trabajador!

Dear GlobalGiving Friends,
Last year we worked hard to keep our New Years resolutions to help our graduates, meaning that in 2011:
Like us, was one of your New Years resolutions to do a good deed for someone else? Now you can! Help us keep our New Year’s resolutions for 2012 and keep yours to give back by supporting us or by spreading the word to your friends about the life-changing work we do today!
Thanks for making it possible for low income Argentine youth to get jobs and further their education this year!

Others, like Cimientos' students, don't have the same support system that we do, and need a little more help than the rest of us to just get by. Many of our students lack the integral resources that are so easy for us to take for granted. The personalized mentoring Cimientos´ Graduates Network provides gives students that added push they need in the right direction, helping them reach for their dreams and gain the confidence and vital tools they need to succeed both personally and professionally.
To truly make a difference, please contribute to our cause today, and help change a student's life in an incredibly meaningful way, for the better. If you give a gift card a present, Globalgiving could donate extra money to our project! Together, we can help the students who need us most, and give them a great reason to be thankful this holiday´ seasons.
In this report you can find Mónica´s picture, one of our high school students who then received a university scholarship thanks to Cimientos´ Graduates Network and graduated last 12/07!!!! You can change low income youth lives like we already did together with Mónica!!!
