Please describe how your project has been successful and how that success is measured
We have a measuring system called SIMEDIMOS which collects all program’s quantitative indicators, including employability. In addition to this, through the results from the “Community Actions”, which are to be made by the young candidates at the end of the Training Program, we measure the program’s immediate impact on the candidates, since human formation sessions’ learning is materialized in actions that show the topics worked on values and citizenship, such as Drug Addiction, Family Violence, Alcoholism, Child Abuse, Child Pornography, Indigence, Environment Contamination and Recycling.
On the other hand, the Job Network is a direct impact measure, since program graduates are followed-up during 1 year. Therefore, we have achieved to confirm the following indicators: out of 1600 young candidates placed, 72% continue to work beyond the trial period, over 700 continue with their college studies, 35% both study and work and 40% of the contributing companies have hired program graduates through Superatec’s Job network.
Finally, we show future impact through hiring companies’ testimonies, who state that SUPERATEC graduates make a difference, proving to be young individuals with values and overcoming desires, beyond this population’s current standards. This young candidates’ employment has benefited over 6500 people.
How will your project evolve over the next three years?
SUPERATEC is signing a partnership with CDI, a Brazilian NGO that uses technology as a tool to fight poverty and inequality, promote entrepreneurial spirit, develop work abilities and create new generations of transformation agents in 13 countries. SUPERATEC will turn into a CDI new region, and it will take the programs from Venezuela to Central America, Andean Countries and the Caribbean, supporting Job network’s effectiveness in a new youth employment site, backed by Bumeran’s platform which is present in all Latin America. Hence, we expect to support SUPERATEC-CDI’s regional growing.
