International Youth Day

Dear Friends:

On Sunday August 12ve, the world celebrates the International Youth Day. In the spirit of this special holiday we’d like to share some of the things we’ve been up to in the past several months.

-On July and August the Cimientos Graduate Network has shared two breakfasts with our young participants. It was a very enriching experience both for the graduates as well as the participating members of the Cimientos team.

- On August 9th we attended the International Young Leaders’ Summit with 5 graduates, who were able to listen to inspiring leaders from different countries and share an enriching day with hundreds of young people from all over Latin America.

“I think it has been a really interesting opportunity because they gave us the possibility of knowing people from different countries, with different professional positions and that gave us another way of seeing things. I think this type of events makes us grow in our professional career.  I am very happy of having assisted to the International Young Leaders” - Belén

 We would like to take this opportunity to share as well this video from one of the members of the Graduate Network:

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