Dear Donors,

Two difficult years have passed and now in 2022 we continue our work in our communities. The pandemic has affected globally the working market, and with that in mind, our new project "An employability ecosystem" wants to help specially de young people.

Working, besides being a source of income, also deepens social bonds. That´s why we want to offer real learning oportunities for young people who live in complex life contexts, who show commitment and a genuine desire of personal development.

Our goal is to have an impact through training in subjective and technical areas, promoting job placement wih paid training practices and formal work.

We will keep you updated and thanks so much for your kind support.

Dear donors,


After almost two years of pandemic, we are happy to share that we are back in our communities.

Bridges is the name of our new youth & employability project. 

We are building an innovative program that promotes the inclusion of young people in situations of social vulnerability. How? Through 3 key instances: learning process + tutorials + labor intermediation managers.


Our challenge: Establish an effective bridge between young people and training, education and job opportunities.

Our task is to train and accompany young people in the process of designing and implementing an occupational training project, which seeks to increase opportunities for genuine and sustainable social inclusion.




1. WHO?

60 Young people between 18 and 24 years old.



Each young person who enters the Program will be immersed in a learning process through work meetings and group reflection + individual tutorials + labor intermediation agencies.

The program is articulated and synergized from these three instances. Tutor and  Insertion Manager,  They are two key figures serving two distinctive spheres. The tutor intervenes in the subjective aspects to transform the powers into effective tools. The Insertion Manager, for its part, facilitates and plans the link between the young person and the different possible insertion spaces (training, occupational, work, educational, etc.)



The Program starts in April  (for the initial tasks of articulation with areas of Government and design of calls) and extends until its full implementation.


4. HOW?

From FOP, 4 groups of 15 young people each are formed. Each group will be assigned a responsible Tutor. The Insertion Manager works with the young people and, in a continuous and articulated way, with the Tutors. Tutor and  Insertion Manager accompany young people from the beginning of the program to its end,


The FOP carries out a Learning Process that is made up of 9 meetings grouped into 3 thematic blocks: Discovering my project, Working on my project, My project in Action. Each of the 9 meetings lasts 3 hours. Additionally, each Tutor establishes a singular and individual accompaniment plan with each of the members of his tutoring group. Simultaneously, the Insertion Manager,  designs a training / occupational / labor mediation plan tailored to each young person. Tutor and Manager accompany, in situ, the application / integration / selection / onboarding processes that each young person starts.

 Thanks for you support!

Dear donors,


A new wave of coronavirus is hitting Argentina. In the last weeks, the goverment has impossed new restrictions and a new full lockdown is now taking place. These new measures obliged us to put all our social projects on hold.

We hope in a new report we could be able to bring you better news. By now, our priority is the safety and protection of the communities where we develop our projects as well as the safety of the professional team that work in the field.

The executive board of Fundación Oportunidad is absoluty commited to develop the projects in our full capacity as soon as the restrictions are lifted and the context makes it possible. 

We will keep you posted, and hopefully share with you brighter news.


Keep safe,

Dear Donors,


2021 is bringing  hope and a new horizon after a very difficult year. We are hoping that with the vaccine the situation will improve and the activities with groups and communities can finally resume.

The entire budget for the project was put on hold watiting for a good and secure time in which it can start. We are still working remotely as is it still not safe to meet in person. Our sponsors and partners are supporting our decision to wait in order to implement the project with the same spirit and expected outcomes that motivated its design as we are aware the  postpandemic situation will be critical for vulnerable populations, in general, and specially among youngsters.


We want to thank you all for your patience and support, and hopefully we can all have better months ahead.

We wish you a happy new year and we will keep you posted on coming news.


Keep well and safe.
