Due to the pandemic, economies are in crisis, and one of the most affected populations is young people, who will see the negative impacts in the longer term. In Costa Rica, youth unemployment figures reach 48%, and there are 90,000 students not linked to formal education. This campaign seeks to generate a change in the current situation, and to work comprehensively and effectively on these problems, in order to prevent greater negative consequences on youth.

The COVID-19 crisis has generated a social and economic impact in all sectors of the country. However, it is very likely that the adolescent and young population will experience the results and consequences of the crisis hardest, as they are particularly exposed to the socio-economic impacts of the pandemic. In this sense, educational permanence, the transition to a decent job and job stability represent an enormous challenge for adolescents and young people in our country.


Accion Joven proposes to work on the problem from the development of initiatives for improvement and complementary training, which provide youth with tools to adapt to the context, allowing them to develop personally and professionally.

Long-Term Impact

The long-term impact of the initiative would have a direct impact on economic reactivation and prevention of poverty, as a strategy for continuous improvement and installation of capacities.
