Where We Work: Colombia

We implemented three of our major initiatives in Latin America and the Caribbean—New Employment Opportunities (NEO), entra21, and Obra—in Colombia. 

Together, these initiatives have created lasting positive change in the country by preparing youth for jobs, building lasting alliances, producing a wealth of research and new learning, and informing new policy built on best practices. As a result of our partnerships here, underserved young people like Adail gained the technical, life, and entrepreneurship skills to avoid drugs and violence and instead find stability and fruitful work. You'll find Colombia among the countries we studied together with CSIS and Hilton Worldwide in the Global Youth Wellbeing Index.
