Mentoring makes a difference!

In Argentina, where nearly 20% of young people neither study nor work, the need to develop actions to give more opportunities to new generations is reinforced. This is the reason why young people who end their participation in the Future Graduate Program get into the Graduate Network, created to contribute building bridges to get them closer to their goals.

 ¡One of the main actions of the Network is the Online Coaching! Through this innovating system, more than 30 young graduates that had common target - to choose superior studies, to look for a job, or to have a good performance in their present suited – where matched through a virtual platform with volunteer mentors that were specially trained and summoned by Cimientos.

 Through Online Coaching, mentors provide a wide range of proposals varying from vocational interest, places where to study, scholarships to which apply, CV formats and presentation letters, online jobs search engines and guides to learn how to study, and more! This mentoring is expected to enable each youngster to identify their achievements, to recognize aspects of improvement and to be a space for support, consultation and reflection about their own interests, doubts and expectations for their future.

 Our programs’ protagonists are young people that face the challenge of building their adult lives. Our experience indicates that mentoring helps youngsters achieve their goals. This virtual coaching to graduate fortifies our idea that many youngsters find in their coach a word, tool or strategy they need to keep going on.
