Sharing Breakfast with our Graduates

Dear friends,

In these last few months, the Cimientos Graduate Network has shared two breakfasts with our young participants - one with graduates who are studying and another with graduates who are working. It was a very enriching experience both for the graduates as well as the participating members of the Cimientos team.

The objective of the breakfasts was to identify the difficulties graduates confront as they begin to work or to study in order to continue improving the service we provide them. We also wanted to provide a venue for the graduates to share their experiences and learn from each other. At both breakfasts participation was very animated, and as a result we were able to determine some of the most compelling needs that characterize the moment of leaving high school.

We also wanted to tell you that in Argentina we celebrate Labor Day on May 1st; your contribution will give more young Argentines a reason to celebrate this holiday!

The Cimientos Team



Queridos amigos,

En estos últimos meses la Red de Egresados de Cimientos ha compartido dos desayunos con los jóvenes participantes de la Red; uno con egresados que estudian y otro con egresados que trabajan. ¡Fue una experiencia muy enriquecedora tanto para los egresados como para los miembros de del equipo de Cimientos que participaron!

Los objetivos de los desayunos eran detectar cuales son las dificultades con las que se enfrentan los egresados al empezar a trabajar o estudiar para poder seguir mejorando las ofertas que les ofrecemos. El otro objetivo era que los egresados intercambien experiencias entre ellos para aprender de las vivencias de los otros. En ambos desayunos la participación de los chicos fue muy activa, razón por lo cual pudimos divisar algunas de las necesidades más relevantes a la hora de salir de la escuela secundaria.

Además queríamos contarles que en Argentina el primero de mayo festejamos el día del Trabajador ¡Tu aporte puede ayudar a que más jóvenes argentinos puedan festejar el día del Trabajador!
