With the collaboration of the invited professional, Mercedes Argaña, psychologist, who holds a Master’s degree in Psychology of Labor, Organizations and Human Resources, a virtual youth talk was organized with the aim to prepare young people in skills and competencies to facilitate labor insertion.
The course seeks to raise awareness of the challenges of the professional and working world, to plan the career and take care of employability.
The activity was developed within the framework of monthly training workshops for young people who are in their senior year of secondary education, young people who completed their secondary education and in the phase of selection and pursuing higher education degrees, as well as for young university students; all of them from the Joven Adelante Project.
Aimed at adolescents and young people, the most exposed and vulnerable groups in terms of risk in the use of technologies, the Internet and social networks, the Virtual Workshop on Safe Use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) focused on an analysis of behavior in social networks, the use of technological resources and the detection of warning signals, within the framework of the concerns to be considered in the use of ICT.
64 adolescents and young people participating in the virtual workshop are members of programs and projects carried out by Fundación Alda.
For this delivery, the arrival of fathers, mothers and caregivers was expected at a store where, under strict health and safety protocol, food and hygiene kits were made for family consumption.
This delivery responds to the express request of the sponsors, who in this way make an additional contribution to the beneficiary families.
20 young people participating in projects by Fundación Alda, started a process of training on audiovisual tools with the support of Children Believe.
The specific objective is to learn how to create short films with arguments and content that reflect their reality, providing the opportunity for them to bring their voices and experiences to the public through audiovisuals, as a key tool in communication in this generation.
The classes are given by professionals in the audiovisual and film field, through a virtual platform. These classes end in October with the challenge of making a whole short film by each student, working from the script, to the realization and editing of the material.
About 80 young people and teenagers of the Joven Adelante Project , who are in school and university, received food kits in order to guarantee an adequate nutrition and help in this way to give continuity to their education in a healthy manner.
The delivery of supplies took place at the Juan de Salazar school of the city of Limpio, and consisted of non-perishable packs of food, bread and milk, as a contribution to the economy of the boys and girls’ families, reaffirming the commitment and effective support in their process of formation.
Thanks to a partnership with the company Raíces Real Estate, 14 schools of Altos received supplies which will allow children, teenagers and teachers to continue with the teaching-learning process in this period of great challenges arising from the suspension of on-site classes due to the healthy emergency.
In this way, 4 public management institutions with intervention of the Alda Educa Project, acquired printers, toner cartridges, educational materials printed and stored in USB flash drives, reams of paper, among others.
Other 10 schools were provided with educational materials and supplies. All this effort seeks to favor the support of the distance-teaching method, contributing to improve the education and life quality of the communities of Altos.
As every year, an effective accompaniment to university students members of the Joven Adelante Project has been ensured by means of technological tools.
The distribution of these laptops is done annually as an incentive to the young people who fulfil the criteria established in the agreement of commitment with the foundation: having studied at university at least for a year and a half and demonstrating commitment to the academic excellence.
The beneficiaries young people of this year are students majoring in Kinesiology and Physiotherapy and Psychology as well.
