This project will give support to 500 homeless people in Buenos Aires to get jobs by offering training, coaching, and one-to-one labor advice. We expect that 100 of them will get jobs and get off the streets. We accompany people in each step: Volunteers look job-opportunities, we give coaching to face interviews and provide all needed to attend: Place to have a shower, clean clothes, money to travel and place to leave their things. If they get jobs we help to hire and furnish a room or house.
There are 7251 people living in the streets in Buenos Aires City, according to the last census carried out by social organizations. Most of them want to leave that situation, but for them, getting a job is not as easy as drafting a resume. Homeless people have to face 5 main challenges when trying to get a job: Lack of ways of contact, Hygiene and clothing, Money to travel, Training to gain self-confidence and face interviews, a place to sleep when getting a job and access to job opportunities.
Multipolar provides coaching, training and access to job interviews thanks to a methodology in which voluntary-human resources- professionals look for job opportunities in a one-to-one way for the homeless people. When they get interviews, we offer all the support needed so they can attend: Clean clothes, a place to get a shower, the money they need to get there, a place where they can leave their things during the interview. If they get a job, we help them to find and a furnish a place to live
This project will help 100 people to get off the streets by getting a job. But this will not only help them but all the other homeless people that today are demotivated and will check that leaving streets is possible if you look for help and work as part of a community. This project will sensitize other stakeholders as companies and government offices to work together with us to create a strategy to end homeless in Buenos Aires.
