giveDIGNITY's vocational initiative
Productive work affirms our dignity
More than 20% of youth in Latin America are neither studying nor looking for work. This percentage is much higher in marginalized communities. Therefore, giveDIGNITY provides a 16-week Jobs for Life course that prepares people to work. Participants graduate with interviewing skills, a resume, letter of recommendation, and a vocational plan, plus a lot of practical experience looking for work. Eighty-five percent of graduates find work or continue their education.
