Creando puentes entre la escuela y la empresa

En América Latina y el Caribe hay 108 millones de jóvenes entre 15 y 24 años, de los cuales un poco más de la mitad, 56 millones, hacen parte de la fuerza laboral. De acuerdo a la Organización Mundial del Trabajo (OIT), la tasa de desempleo en 2015 entre estos jóvenes (15,7%) triplicó la de adultos y las perspectivas no se muestran alentadoras para 2016 y 2017. La situación se complejiza para las mujeres y para los jóvenes más vulnerables, aumentando en estos segmentos la informalidad.

Youth unemployment for these youth ages 15-24 averages 13.4%, double the 6.3% general unemployment rate. This figure is particularly high for young women, at 17.2% versus 11.3% for young men.

How to scale up youth employment and entrepreneurship projects

Countless organizations across the region aim to help youth fulfill their potential and be better prepared for jobs and their lives ahead. At the MIF, we’ve seen and supported many innovative youth training projects, including approaches that use sports, arts, or even circus acts. However, many such pilot-scale youth employment and entrepreneurship projects remain small. How can we at the MIF help them expand their reach to wider populations? And what are the critical factors that lead to their success or failure on a larger scale?
