Challenge

756,000 argentine youth between 15 and 24 years old don't work, don't look for work and have dropped-out of school. Low income youth have little access to vital professional and educational opportunities. Even those who have finished high school are not prepared to face the world after graduating. Through employment and educational resources they can acquire the tools they need to achieve their life goals and escape poverty.

Solution

We provide 1000 low income youth from 18 Argentine provinces with job, training and higher education options so they can have a future. We research job and academic opportunities; work with organizations, universities and companies; provide mentoring / life-coaching; hold retreats; manage a participants blog and provide digital literacy/job-entry training courses for low-income youth.

Long-Term Impact

We help youth receive scholarships and obtain jobs, allowing them to have more personal and professional options. This positively influences their family and community, and helps curb the vicious cycle of social exclusion and poverty in Argentina.
