Dear Members, Partners and Friends,
Employability is a key ingredient of social development, especially employability of younger generations.
More than one in six young people are out of work due to the COVID-19 pandemic while those who remain employed have seen their working hours cut, according to the International Labour Organization (ILO). Particularly in low- and middle-income countries, up to 75% of young people work in the informal economy with no job security and little to no social protection.
Young people are more than ever in need of help to enter and develop in the labour market, and corporations are key actors of measurable change in the youth employment space. Hence the importance of joining forces and working together to support youth employability and provide solutions to youth unemployment.
LATCAM was delighted to host this patron’s webinar offered by Nestlé, where we discussed how Swiss companies can help export the key factor in the success of this great little country: its educational model. Education and preparation for employment are the most significant and sustainable contributions we can make to a young person to help them have a bright and prosperous future.
