Dear Global Giving Friends,

We hope you have had a wonderful holiday season. Last year we worked hard to keep our New Years resolutions to help our graduates, meaning that in 2010:

  • 1160 participants received useful information about education, employment or job-training opportunities.
  • 343 graduates received vital job training such as how to search for a job, computer skills training and accounting lessons.
  • 229 graduates are following our Graduates´ blog, which we created this year.
  • 50 participants were granted scholarships to further their education. 
  • 28 graduates found jobs thanks to our help.
  • 16 participants volunteered at Cimientos. 
  • 447 participants graduated from high school and Cimientos’ School Scholarship Program. 
  • 338 Cimientos new high school graduates became part of the Graduates Network. 

Like us, was one of your New Years resolutions to do a good deed for someone else? Now you can! Help us keep our New Year’s resolutions for 2011 and keep yours to give back by supporting us or spreading the word to your friends today!

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

María and Sarah – Cimientos Graduates Network Team

Estimados amigos de Global Giving,

Esperamos que hayan tenido muy felices fiestas. El año pasado trabajamos intensamente para lograr nuestros objetivos del año y ayudar a nuestros egresados… Fue así como en 2010:

  • 1160 jóvenes fueron asesorados con información sobre oportunidades de formación, capacitación y empleo en todo el país.
  • 343 jóvenes se capacitaron a través de cursos de orientación para la búsqueda de empleo y de conocimientos específicos.
  • 229 egresados se suscribieron al blog de egresados que creamos este año.
  • 50 jóvenes estudiaron con becas universitarias y/o terciarias.
  • 28 jóvenes consiguieron trabajo por acciones realizadas desde la Red de Egresados.
  • 16 jóvenes fueron voluntarios de Cimientos.
  • 447 jóvenes finalizaron el secundario y su participación en el Programa de Becas Escolares de Cimientos.
  • 338 nuevos egresados ya se sumaron a la Red de Egresados.

Como en nuestro caso, ¿alguna de tus metas de 2010 fue hacer alguna buena acción por otra persona? ¡Ahora podés! Ayudanos a cumplir nuestras metas para 2011 y cumplí las tuyas apoyándonos y difundiendo nuestro proyecto con tus amigos!

¡Gracias por hacer posible que jóvenes argentinos con bajos recursos consigan trabajos y tengan más y mejor educación!
