Many Latin American high school graduates struggle to find decent jobs. They often find themselves unemployed or trying to run their own business under less than optimal conditions — they either earn no salary or earn unreported wages.
Worse still, they may find themselves in the unfortunate situation of neither going to school nor working, nor looking for work. (We often refer to them as “NEET” – not in employment, education or training – youth.)
In addition to encouraging them to finish school, Forge offers a concrete solution to the problem of youth unemployment through an innovative training and job placement program.
At the beginning of each school year, Forge enrolls new students by reaching out to over 150+ public schools in Argentina, Uruguay and Peru.
