PN-T1236 : IT Careers for Youth

Project Status: Implementation

The program will introduce an online Google IT Certification for vulnerable populations, such as youth and women, in Mexico, Panama and Brazil, as a partnership between Google.org, IDB Lab, the Social Sector of the IDB, and outstanding nonprofit organizations. It will address the acute digital skills gap in the region and the lack of upward mobility for vulnerable populations. The IT Support certification will be an entry point, but also a stepping stone to career paths in the rapidly growing technology sector.
