  •          1014 participantsreceived useful information about education, employment or job-training opportunities to help them reach their personal and professional goals.
  •          590 graduates are subscribed to our Graduates’ blog and 590 are followers to the Graduates Network Facebook profile.
  •          310 graduates received vital job training such as how to search for a job, computer skills, and accounting lessons.
  •          46 graduated recieved online mentoring by 43 volunteers trained by Cimientos.
  •          43 participants were granted university scholarships to further their education and studied different college careers. 3 of them graduated and now have a college degree.
  •          20 graduates found jobs thanks to our help help and obtained personalized mentoring during the first 3 months at their new jobs.
  •          24 participants volunteered at Cimientos.
  •          4 graduates meetings were held in Cimientos headquarters in Buenos Aires where 64 participants were trained, exchanged their experiences and we also took them to the movies!!!
