Summary

ANIMA is an educational organization with the goal to bring together the job market and the world of education by providing at-risk Uruguayan youth with tuition-free education in the areas of IT and business administration. With a special focus on the professional and human development of our students, ANIMA is committed to help reduce the high rate of youth unemployment in Uruguay as well increasing the chances of youth obtaining their high school diploma.

Challenge

In Uruguay, educational disengagement during high school is one of the country's greatest problems, with barely 40% of the population completing high school. This dropout is attributed not only to early engagement in the labor market among the most vulnerable population, but also to a loss of interest due to the perceived disconnection between what is taught in secondary education and its usefulness for the labor market. Uruguay has also one of the highest youth unemployment rates in LATAM.

Solution

ANIMA's program links the world of education with the professional world, and the opportunity to learn while working through paid internships at local supporting companies. This dual education approach tries to respond to the two realities of a large number of the population not finishing high school and the high youth unemployment rates, by connecting the student to the labor market early on and dialoguing with the business sector to align education with market demands.

Long-Term Impact

ANIMA firmly believes in the potential of our youth, and the transformative power of education and quality work in the quest for learning. By providing a safe and free space for our youth to learn skills that are demanded in the work space today, and that satisfy their interest and needs, we are contributing to increasing their chances of finishing high school and reducing the unemployment rate in Uruguay. Yearly we support over 200 young people in our program.
