Friday, December 23, 2011

Some 12,500 young Hondurans have taken part in Proempleo, the program supported by the Inter-American Development Bank as a part of $30.6 million secondary education project from 2004 to 2011.

The goal of the program was to boost job opportunities for unemployed and underemployed people aged 18 to 29.

A strategic alliance with the private sector enabled the program to achieve a high job placement rate of over 77 percent. Out of all the young people who went through the program, 9,607 obtained a steady job with benefits at the companies where they interned at the end of their training.
