Project in progress - Workshops 2017

By Guillermina Gordoa | Project Leader

We are pleased to share with you the progress we have made since the beginning of the school year in Argentina.

We contacted the authorities of different public schools in Buenos Aires and we have already agreed with 4 institutions to give our workshops to the students of the last two years of high school.

This year we have implemented a modification regarding the duration of each workshop: each will be 6 hours, and will be divided into two workshops of 3 hours each.

This change was decided in our supervision meetings and the content was modified, taking into account that there are elements that are different according to the type of job interview, how to prepare for it, the type of interviews that are carried out, which can be Formal or informal, face-to-face or Skype-type applications; Depending on who performs the searches: it is not the same as a multinational company, a small business or a neighborhood business.

Therefore, the workshops we carry out with young people will be more focused and specific and the time will be used more efficiently.

In this way, we also expand the number of programs to 14 and therefore, we will reach more than 350 young students.

We have already started with the dictation of 4 workshops in a public school located in Fragata Sarmiento 1817 street of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires.

Our work is based on the implementation of a device that has as main objective the development of tools and subjective techniques necessary for the development of a work project.

These areas focus on rescuing the potentials that allow young people to be recognized as capable of entering a demanding and competitive labor market.

These meetings encourage young people to think about their own potentialities, which are the main resource to begin planning for a better and better future.

Thanks to your help we can continue making improvements to our project!
