In 2018, with support from FedEx, IYF launched the Jóvenes con Entrega initiative to build on the success of the TalenTICs program (2017) to prepare young men and women in Mexico with in-demand skills that help them start careers in the growth field of logistics, which offers promising earning potential. Working in partnership with CONALEP and COBACH, IYF has scaled-up the model in Mexico City, expanding to the states of Quintana Roo and Mexico State. Over a three-year period, IYF has leveraged the training course developed for the logistics sector and integrated it into CONALEP’s and COBACH´s regular academic course offerings. The project has successfully integrated logistics training, PTS, and job placement services into the schools´ structure, reaching approximately 14,000 new students annually and continuing to prepare them for quality jobs in the logistics sector long after the project ends.
