Keeping up our hard work

Dear friends,

As you already know, one of our main goals in Cimientos Graduates Network is to help our high school graduates obtain jobs.

In Argentina, there are now 900,000 youth who neither study nor work. This situation exposes them to vulnerability and danger. In Cimientos Graduates Network, we work to change this terrible situation!

In recent months, we offered 50 job opportunities from different non profit organizations and firms that work with us. We also invite them to workshops about job search, in order to help them get a better job. Participants learned how to prepare a resume, they receive tips for job interviews, and other important advice for future employment. These workshops also help youth appreciate and give real meaning to work.

Last but not least, we want to share Juan´s words about our work. He participated in one of these workshops and also volunteered in Cimientos annual raising funds event:

“There is no way to give back Cimientos what they did for us on a stage of our life that is really important. They gave us an incredible support, they always are there telling us that nothing is impossible with proposition and commitment.”

 Next Sunday is Mother`s Day in USA. If you want to give your mother a gift, please consider a gift card so that she can make a donation to our project and you both can share the gift of giving! :)
