We´ve been really busy the last several weeks because school and university classes started on March, we have started 2 new training courses in Programming and Administrative Assistance for 55 low income youth.
In this report we just wanted to share great news... We are thrilled because it´s the first time we cand share with you our Graduates Network annual report. This is a larger report of what we did last year than the ones we upload every 2 o 3 months in GG´s site. You will find our 2016 annual results, more detailed information and more photographs and testimonials of our participants.
This was possible thanks to Natalia, a GG´ volunteer who made the whole translation to English. If any of you speaks both good Spanish and English and would like to help translate to English our next report, please contact us so that we can stay in touch next time we need another translation in order to keep on sharing more detailed information.
We hope to count on your support once more by donating to our project. Together we can change hundreds of low- income youths and their families lives.
PD If you have any feedback about our annual report we will be happy to recieve it. :)

This year is almost coming to an end and we have plenty of things to give thanks for... December is a really special month to us because school classes finish in Argentina so it´s a great month to celebrate the graduation of new children. 360 low- income youth from 15 provinces are finishing high school thanks to Cimientos scholarships and mentorings and many of them got excellent grades and were the best pupils of their whole class!!!!!
We will share the rest of our annual results in our next report because we are still working hard until the last minute to help more youth find their first job... For instance, next Thursday December 1st we are holding our last workshop and get together for our youth. Around 50 of them have confirmed their attendance. During this event, they will prepare their resume and will be trained for their first work interview. At the end, 25 Human Resources employers from more than 10 firms will come to interview them for real job opportunities!!!!
December is also a special month because all over the world people celebrate Christmas and New Year and like to give special presents to their beloved ones. Please consider giving a gift card of our project to your family and friends. This can make a huge difference to our project, increasing our impact in low-income youth lives!
