Accompanying our youth during COVID

Youth opinion about Vocational guidance workshops
Youth opinion about Vocational guidance workshops

Dear friends,

The last three months have been really challenging, not only for us but for the entire world.  Argentina is in quarantine since March 20th.  Our Graduates Network had organized our first workshop for that day. We were expecting around 40 youngsters from different localities but we had to put off every face-to-face activity since then.

By the end of March, we decided to take a survey to our youth to learn how they were dealing with this new situation and how Cimientos could help them with their educational and employment paths. Thanks to our Evaluation team, who analyzed more than a thousand surveys in just a week of hard work, we found out that only 30% of our youth had notebooks or tablets to put up with shool and university homework and online clases and the rest of them only use cell phones.  They asked for help in job search, remote study,  online courses and some of them even solicitated Internet data to be able to do these activities.

In this report you can see some pictures of our first webinars and workshops that took place in May. Vocational guidance and learning to study remotely were some of our topics. We also held some personalized mentorings because some youth needed extra help in this difficult time and thanks to this they were able to prepare their Curriculum vitae and start seeking for a job, sign up for different virtual workshops and even graduate for school after preparing a final exam with our orientarion.

In June we will start donating Internet data to some youth so that they don´t miss their lessons and activities. We have also organized a virtual program to acccompany 72 youth from all over Argentina in defining their life project during their last high school year that will start in June 10th. For those who already graduated from school and are seeking for a job, next week we will start a soft skills and administrative assistant virtual course organized along with KPMG firm for 30 youth.

To be able to carry forward these activities, we need your support more than ever.

Thanks to all of you who can make a donation and who can spread the word of our project among family and friends.

Best regards,

María
