Dec 29, 2021

We successfully completed our 2021 programs!!!!

ENGLISH VERSION:

Honoring what was promised in our previous report, we want to share with all of you how was the culmination of the ¨Jóvenes creaTIvos¨ program 2021:

  • September 11 - November 13: Front-End and Mobile development training. During this period of time, we continued with the training that began on August 28th; the instructors continued to delve into specialized topics in software development. Of the three groups that were part of this third cohort, two focused their learning on front-end development, where they learned programming languages such as Javascript and HTML, and the other group focused on Mobile development, where they learned from DART and Flutter, among other topics.
  • October 11 - November 22: Renault Talks Cycle. A cycle of 4 talks was held, offered by our ally Renault. Given the results of the survey conducted in September 2021, the topics to be discussed were chosen, seeking that they would be of interest to the beneficiaries and that they complement their curricular training on the topics described above. The talks addressed the following topics: Generation of new income, How to make a personal budget, Digital Marketing and Emotional Intelligence.
  • November 20: Final Projects presentation. This was a fun day that took place at the facilities of our partner Sofka Technologies, where 55 of the 65 young beneficiaries of the program presented their final project to an expert jury on each topic. The completion and presentation of this project was optional, however, it represents the main requirement to apply for employability for beneficiaries of grade 11, aspiring to be linked to employment at the end of the program.
  • November 24: Final survey. A survey was carried out among the young participants of the program to evaluate different aspects of phase 3 of the program. Very satisfactory results were obtained that serve us not only as feedback but also as motivation to move forward. Among these results, it is worth highlighting the assessment given to the content of the software development training, which had an average rating of 4.73 out of 5, as well as the impact of the program, which had a rating of 4.84 out of 5. These results demonstrate the quality of the program and its contribution to the training and future of the young people who were part of it.
  • November 27: ¨Jóvenes creaTIvos¨ 2021 closing ceremony. It was held in the citadel for the fourth industrial revolution (C4TA) in the city of Medellín, where 65 young people from the three groups received the certification for successfully completing the program. It was attended by the Secretary of Education of Envigado, representatives of the Medellín mayor's office and Sofka Technologies. Special recognitions were made to the young people who stood out the most for their attitude, participation and performance, and also to instructors, monitors and allies who made this process possible. The session was enlivened by the musical groups Illary and Clave de Dos.

In the first week of December, the selection process for employability began, for the beneficiaries who applied and who met the requirements. In principle, a maximum of 20 applicants will have the opportunity to join Sofka Technologies, and we will continue searching  for other opportunities for those not selected.

It has really been a very satisfactory job that was carried out during this year 2021 with this third cohort of the ¨Jóvenes creaTIvos¨ program, which motivates and encourages us to start planning the new program that we will carry out in 2022, in where we have set the ambitious goal of reaching 300 young beneficiaries in five cities in Colombia (Bogotá, Medellín, Envigado, Cali and Barranquilla). We are sure that thanks to the work we are doing from the ROFÉ foundation and with the support of all of you, we will successfully carry out the new 2022 cohort.

Thanks to your support, we continue transforming lives. Thank you for being transformative energy. ¡Thanks for being ROFÉ!

 

VERSIÓN EN ESPAÑOL:

Cumpliendo con lo prometido en nuestro anterior reporte, queremos compartir con todos ustedes cómo fue la culminación del programa de Jóvenes creaTIvos 2021:

 

  • Septiembre 11 – Noviembre 13: Entrenamiento en formación en desarrollo Front-End y Mobile. Durante este periodo de tiempo se dio continuidad al entrenamiento que comenzó el 28 de agosto; los instructores siguieron profundizando en temas especializados del desarrollo de software. De los tres grupos que hacían parte de esta tercera cohorte, dos enfocaron su aprendizaje en desarrollo front-end, donde conocieron lenguajes de programación como Javascript y HTML, y el otro grupo enfocó su aprendizaje en desarrollo Mobile, donde aprendieron de DART y Flutter, entre otros temas.
  • Octubre 11 – Noviembre 22:  Ciclo de Charlas Renault. Se llevó a cabo un ciclo de 4 charlas ofrecido por nuestro aliado Renault. Ante los resultados de la encuesta dirigida en septiembre de 2021, se escogieron los temas a tratar, buscando que fuesen del interés de los beneficiarios y que complementaran su formación curricular en los temas anteriormente descritos. Las charlas abordaron los siguientes tópicos: Generación de nuevos ingresos, Cómo hacer un presupuesto personal, Marketing Digital e Inteligencia Emocional.
  • Noviembre 20:Presentación de Proyectos Finales. Esta fue una jornada lúdica que se llevó a cabo en las instalaciones de nuestro aliado Sofka Technologies, en donde 55 de los 65 jóvenes beneficiarios del programa hicieron la presentación de su proyecto final ante un jurado experto en cada tema. La realización y presentación de este proyecto fue opcional, sin embargo, representa el requisito principal para aplicar a empleabilidad para los beneficiarios de grado 11, aspirantes a vincularse laboralmente al culminar el programa.
  • Noviembre 24:Encuesta final. Se llevó a cabo la encuesta entre los jóvenes participantes del programa para evaluar diferentes aspectos de la fase 3 del mismo. Se obtuvieron resultados muy satisfactorios que nos sirven no solo de retroalimentación sino de motivación para seguir adelante. Entre estos resultados vale la pena resaltar la valoración dada al contenido del entrenamiento en formación de desarrollo de software, el cual tuvo una calificación promedio de 4,73 sobre 5, así como el impacto del programa, el cual tuvo una valoración de 4,84 sobre 5. Estos resultados demuestran la calidad del programa y el aporte que el mismo tiene en la formación y al futuro de los jóvenes que hicieron parte del mismo.
  • Noviembre 27:Ceremonia de clausura Jóvenes creaTIvos 2021. Se llevó a cabo en la ciudadela para la cuarta revolución industrial (C4TA) de la ciudad de Medellín, en donde 65 jóvenes de los tres grupos recibieron la certificación por culminar satisfactoriamente el programa. Se contó con la asistencia del secretario de educación de Envigado, de representantes de la alcaldía de Medellín y de Sofka Technologies. Se hicieron reconocimientos especiales a los jóvenes que mas se destacaron por su actitud, participación y desempeño, a instructores, a monitores y a aliados que hicieron posible este proceso. La sesión estuvo amenizada por los grupos musicales Illary y Clave de Dos. 

En la primera semana de diciembre se dio inicio al proceso de selección para empleabilidad, para los beneficiarios que aplicaron y que cumplen con los requisitos exigidos. En principio se dará la oportunidad a un máximo de 20 aplicantes de vincularse a Sofka Technologies, y seguiremos en la búsqueda de otras oportunidades para los no seleccionados.

Realmente ha sido un trabajo muy satisfactorio el que se llevó a cabo durante este año 2021 con esta tercera cohorte del programa Jóvenes creaTIvos, lo cual nos motiva y nos incentiva para comenzar a planear el nuevo programa que llevaremos a cabo en el año 2022, en donde nos hemos puesto la ambiciosa meta de llegar a 300 jóvenes beneficiarios en cinco ciudades de Colombia (Bogotá, Medellín, Envigado, Cali y Barranquilla). Estamos seguros que gracias al trabajo que estamos haciendo desde la fundación ROFÉ y al apoyo de todos ustedes sacaremos adelante en forma exitosa la nueva cohorte 2022.

Gracias a su apoyo seguimos transformando vidas. Gracias por ser energía transformadora. ¡Gracias por ser ROFÉ!
