Project Report | Feb 13, 2020
We are in Medellin and Medellin is betting on us!

By Ana Margarita Velasquez | Executive Director

ENGLISH VERSION

We are glad to announce that we have already established our programs for youth in Medellin. This year we will work with 100 students from grade 10 and 11 from public schools of the most vulnerable communities of Medellin and Envigado.

This first quarter we have started the application process, to select the 100 youngsters that will begin the Jóvenes creaTIvos program in 2020.

This program allows us to train them for work in three areas:

essential skills - topics such as leadership, teamwork, conflict resolution, and communication.

Entrepreneurial skills- ideation, validation and expansion of their business idea.

And training in software development, preparing them for the fourth industrial revolution, as programmers.

The program includes:

· Training in all three topics

· Study kit

· Pedagogical visits

· Transportation to and from the workshops

· Quick meal in every session

· Participation certificate

With this program these young men and women acquire experience and knowledge, projecting a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.

At the same time, they broaden their opportunities of studying a formal career in Information Technology, satisfying the needs of a market that requires qualified human talent.

We foresee to review all applications and select the beneficiaries between February and March, and formally inaugurate the 4 programs before April begins.

We will keep you posted…
