Promoting Apprenticeship as a Path for Youth Employment in Argentina, Costa Rica, and Kenya

In September 2016, the US Department of Labor (USDOL) awarded GAN Global  a grant to implement a project titled Promoting Apprenticeships as a Path for Youth Employment in Argentina, Costa Rica and Kenya through GAN Networks. The key results of the project are as follows:

GAN Argentina and GAN Costa Rica

  • Established two highly functional GAN Networks in Argentina and Costa Rica, which offer technical advice, training and support to public and private entities interested in developing work-based learning (WBL) opportunities for youth
  • Fueled growing interest in GAN’s work and WBL throughout Latin America with a series of educational videos and events
  • Developed research on important issues for WBL in Argentina and Costa Rica (available under Reports)
  • Provided training to advance technical understanding of WBL, including cost, delivery, set-up and curriculum development, like the Training of Trainers in Argentina in collaboration with UIA and the Argentine-German Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK Argentina)
  • Prompted increased private sector interest in diversifying talent pipelines, e.g. in Argentina by supporting a campaign on women in manufacturing and funded research focused on women in logistics

GAN Kenya

  • Produced The Creative Process documentary highlighting the educational and skilling pathways of seven Kenya-based artists and seeded the creation of a mentorship network for young creatives in Kenya
