In 2023, building on the success of the Jóvenes con Entrega program developed in Mexico, IYF launched a new initiative in El Salvador, with generous support from FedEx.
This program will promote increased diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the country’s growing logistics labor market by adapting, piloting, and institutionalizing the proven Jóvenes con Entrega model developed in Mexico to the El Salvadoran context. The logistics technical training program will be piloted with Agape, in coordination with the national professional training authority (INSAFORP), paving the way for national financing of future trainings.
The Jóvenes con Entrega model includes three successful elements: life skills training through IYF’s Passport to Success® (PTS) curriculum and methodology; demand-driven technical logistics training; and support to help 150 students access opportunities in their local labor market. In doing so, IYF will address three critical drivers of social exclusion: lack of social mobility, discrimination against marginalized youth, and gender inequity.
Currently, we have impacted 111 young people by imparting both life and technical skills. The ten-month training program of the labor market intermediation program supports graduates by providing easier access to better-paying jobs and relevant knowledge.
