Dear GlobalGiving Friends,

Last year we worked hard to keep our New Years resolutions to help our graduates, meaning that in 2011:

  • 1436 participants received useful information about education, employment or job-training opportunities to help them reach their personal and professional goals 
  • 381 graduates are subscribed to our Graduates’ blog and 316 became Facebook friends with us after we created our page earlier this year.  
  •  469 participants graduated from high school and Cimientos’ School Scholarship Program. 
  • 281 of our recent high school graduates joined the Graduates Network.  
  • 463 graduates received vital job training such as how to search for a job, computer skills, and accounting lessons.
  • 35 participants were granted scholarships to further their education. 
  • 3 participants proudly graduated from college. They all had scholarships that the Graduates Network helped them receive, greatly increasing their ability to attend and stay in school through the end.
  • 27 graduates found jobs thanks to our help.
  • 98 participants volunteered at Cimientos. 
  • 6 graduates participated in our new Project “Youth Leaders”.
  • 4 graduates meetings were held with a total of 41 participants.
  • 3 participants that had to re-take their final exams finally graduated from high school with the help of our personalized mentoring.
  • 69 NGOs, universities and fcompanies worked together with the Graduates´ Network to provide low income Argentine youth with job opportunities, employment training and education resources.

Like us, was one of your New Years resolutions to do a good deed for someone else? Now you can! Help us keep our New Year’s resolutions for 2012 and keep yours to give back by supporting us or by spreading the word  to your friends about the life-changing work we do today!

Thanks for making it possible for low income Argentine youth to get jobs and further their education this year!
