entra21: Preparing Youth in Latin America and the Caribbean to Enter the Modern Workplace

"Para Información en Español, clic aquí."

The International Youth Foundation (IYF) and the Multilateral Investment Fund (MIF) of the Inter-American Development Bank have joined forces to prepare workers for the jobs of the new economy in Latin America and the Caribbean. Together we created a US$29 million program, entra 21, to co-finance youth employment projects in information technology (IT). This four-year collaboration aims to:

  • Support local projects that train young people and assist them in securing jobs that require IT skills
  • Create partnerships among nonprofit organizations, governments, and businesses to meet the IT training and employment needs of the region
  • Identify, document, and disseminate best practices in training, job placement, and collaboration among participating organizations
