Where We Work: Argentina
Starting in 2002, we built alliances and supporting scalable solutions for youth leadership and workforce readiness in Argentina.
Beginning with Make a Connection, we worked with youth leaders and networks across the country to promote youth as agents of change. Through entra21, a regional youth employability initiative, our partnership with three local NGOs helped more than 100,000 young people gain market-relevant technical and life skills. We also helped 100 municipal employment offices build their capacity to serve disadvantaged youth. In 2015, as part of the Walmart Social Retail Training Program, we worked with local partner Fundación SES and the country’s Ministry of Labor to provide training to 13,000 youth for jobs in the growing retail sector.
