Summary

The crisis is increasingly harming the formal and professional labor market in Argentina. However, the software industry grew more than 300% over the last decade, creating a fast-growing demand for technological profiles. IntegrarTEC is a scholarship program specially designed for those who want to be programmers. It is mentor-based and benefits from the knowledge accumulated during 17 years of experience supporting vulnerable students and preparing them to join the labor force.

Challenge

The IT sector in Latam is experiencing exponential growth and lack of skilled personnel is the main structural barrier to the sector's development. Argentina houses 34% of the region's biotechnology firms, the largest startups in artificial intelligence, and the software industry is projected to create in the next 2 years between 6,000 and 8,000 jobs, with 50% of these being highly technical programming roles.

Solution

While this demand for skilled IT workers continues to grow, Argentinian youth unemployment is the highest in the Latin American region. IntegrarTEC scholarships are awarded to youth between 17 and 28 years old from underprivileged neighborhoods, who are interested in one-year intensive training to become certified FullStack Programmers. At the end, participants receive updated information on IT employability in during a three-day workshop.

Long-Term Impact

In a country with so much social inequality, at Integrar we believe that talent is distributed evenly among the population. For the last 17 years, our scholarship programs have provided opportunities for young people living in poverty who want to have a higher education to be able to join the workforce with competitive skills and thus rise out of poverty. We are happy to report that 90 percent of Integrar 186 graduates have a formal job related to their careers.
