Guest accreditation and reception
Guest accreditation and reception

Dear friends,

In this opportunity we want to share great news with you! Last week 6 youth obtained their first job. They were hired  by Adecco to work in a Corporate Risponsability event.
For most of them it was their first work experience. Their tasks included guests accreditation and reception.
We share with you some pictures and Addeco comments " Good morning! How are you? I would like to thank you for coordinating all the arrangements with the students. The event was a big success! The students were wonderful, always well predisposed. It was a pleasure to work with them."
We want to keep working  in order to give more employment and education opportunities to youth living under vulnerable conditions in Argentina.
We count with your help!
Thank you.

Dear friends!

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.

Best regards,

María

PD If you have any feedback about our annual report we will be happy to recieve it. :)
