The work with Junior Achievement is key to continue bringing digital tools free of charge to more and more young people, and thus democratize information and access to education” he commented.

In the country, youth unemployment affects around 20% of the young population and doubles that of adult unemployment (Labor market. Socioeconomic rates and indicators (EPH), INDEC 2021). Therefore, this program seeks to bring not only training in technical and socio-emotional skills, but also seeks to be a pillar in youth employability.
“Growing up with Google for Youth totally exceeded my expectations. Getting started on self-knowledge through a Digital Marketing course was a very significant experience. An innovative idea that, luckily, is being implemented more and more in the world of work”, he says. JonathanGuevara, recent graduate of the program.
