Dear Global Giving Partners, Thanks to your support, in 2009 Cimientos was able to provide employment tools and education resources to low income youth so that they could obtain jobs, receive a higher education and escape poverty. Some of our project results for 2009 are: • 105 youth participants received vital job training such as how to search for a job, computer skills training, English classes and accounting lessons. • 38 youth participants received university scholarships. • 875 youth participants received information about education, employment or job-training opportunities. • 30 youth participants became Cimientos volunteers. • We sent out the first 5 editions of the Graduate Network monthly newsletter. • We established partnerships with the company Manpower, the Tzedaká Foundation and the Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (UADE) in order to offer job-training and educational opportunities to our graduates. We additionally began working with a number of other organizations in order to provide project participants with even more education and job opportunities. To start off 2010, we are currently working on facilitating the digital inclusion of 480 students that are about to graduate from high school so that they can be better prepared for the job market and be better equipped to continue with their education once they finish high school. If you donate to low-income youth in Argentina today (Tuesday, March 16th), Global Giving will match your donation by 30%, increasing your impact! Thank you for your support and for helping Argentine youth escape poverty! The Cimientos Team Sebastian´s Story After graduating from high school with the support of Cimientos, the Graduates Network helped Sebastián get a job by sending his resumé to a publishing house. He has been working there since February, and is incredibly happy and grateful that Cimientos provided him with the resources he needed to take advantage of this profesional opportunity. Ivana thanks Cimientos “I want to thank the entire incredible Cimientos team that continuously supports us!!! All the information about job training sessions, workshops and scholarships that you provide us with is incredibly helpful! Thank you for always being there for us!” - Ivana, 2007 program graduate, Mar del Plata Estimados socios de Global Giving, Gracias a la colaboración de ustedes, en 2009 Cimientos pudo brindar herramientas e información acerca de oportunidades de formación, capacitación y empleo para que jóvenes de bajos recursos económicos pudieran conseguir trabajo y continuar con su educación. Algunos resultados del trabajo realizado en 2009 son: • 105 jóvenes se capacitaron a través de cursos de orientación para la búsqueda de empleo y de conocimientos específicos (computación, inglés, facturación en prestaciones médicas, etc). 38 jóvenes obtuvieron becas universitarias. • 875 jóvenes fueron asesorados por la Red de Egresados, con información sobre oportunidades de formación, capacitación y empleo. • 30 jóvenes participaron como voluntarios de Cimientos. • Se enviaron las primeras 5 ediciones de un boletín digital mensual exclusivo para egresados. • Se establecieron acuerdos de colaboración con la empresa Manpower, la Fundación Tzedaká y la Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (UADE) para ofrecer oportunidades de capacitación y de formación a egresados. Además, se articuló el trabajo con otras numerosas organizaciones. En el 2010, estamos trabajando para favorecer la inclusión digital de 480 alumnos próximos a egresar a fin de que estén mejor preparados para el mercado laboral y continuar estudiando una vez finalizada la escuela secundaria. ¡Si hoy (martes 16 de marzo) haces una donación a jóvenes con bajos recursos económicos, Global Giving donará un 30% adicional y tu impacto será mayor! ¡Gracias por colaborar y por ayudar a que jóvenes argentinos puedan salir de la pobreza! El equipo de Cimientos Sebastián, una historia de éxito Sebastián consiguió trabajo a través de la Red de Egresados de Cimientos enviando su CV a una editorial de libros. Está trabajando desde febrero y está muy contento de haber accedido a esta oportunidad brindada por Cimientos. Ivana agradece a Cimientos “¡¡¡Desde ya quiero agradecer a todo el equipo humano increíble de Cimientos que se sigue preocupando por nosotros!!! ¡Es de mucha ayuda la información de capacitaciones de empleo y becas que nos brindan! ¡Gracias por seguir acompañándome!” - Ivana, egresada 2007, Mar del Plata
