"Working is Worth it"

Do you know that....people between 15 and 29 years old in Argentina, a quarter of the country's population, find themselves in a highly complex and unfavorable context, which brings them closer to vulnerable living conditions. 62% did not finish high school, which translates into high levels of unemployment or precarious work. Only 1 in 4 young women under the age of 24 works. This proportion is even lower in the more vulnerable social sector.

According to a study by  Cippec Social Protection Program, in the province of Buenos Aires, which is where 40% of young people who neither study nor work live, 74% are young women who are at home taking care of their children or siblings, with no network to stay at school or work.

In the poorest 20%, only one in five young people finish high school. In the richest 20% there are 4 out of 5. Only less than one in 100 young people in the poorest 20% complete college. In the richest 20%, it is completed by a fifth.

Adding Tools -2002-2009-.

Project aimed at young people from 17 to 29 years old. This program addresses the problem of building a work project, with special emphasis on the development of life skills. The project starts from the idea of reappropriation of knowledge and tools, allowing young people to resignify their capacities and subjective positions. The project has been possible thanks to the network of more than 250 schools in the Province of Buenos Aires, which each year have supported our work.

Population reached: 75,000

The work, based on three pillars: employers' companies, youth and social sector organizations, is central to guarantee a coupling between the demand presented by companies and the expectations and needs of young people. The work that we carry out from FOP begins in the classroom, working on site with young people, teachers and families, and accompanying the entire process of training, selection and entry to the job.
