Goal 8: Assist at-risk youth between ages 16-25 through efforts to afford them
economic opportunities and engage them in productive activities.
On Track


Both the USG and GOES are carrying out programs for at-risk youth. During this reporting period, the
USG provided vocational training to 1,056 at-risk youth in cosmetics, bread making, computer
maintenance, car mechanics, sales representatives, cooking, messenger services and other professional
subjects from which 384 found employment. A Civil Protection training program to develop work skills is
being conducted for 500 at-risk youth in an initial phase. Curricula for civil protection, professional
formation and culture of peace have been developed. Additionally, the USG has established alliances
with more than 230 private companies to facilitate job interviews and access to employment for youth
and established 26 micro-enterprises in high-risk communities in San Salvador. The GOES sponsored a
temporary employment program with USG support, which trained more than 3,500 new beneficiaries
during the semester in urban areas in job/life skills, including a large percentage of youth. The GOES
launched a program called Special Parks for Social Reinsertion and Culture of Peace that is designed to
promote life skills among at-risk youth and youth from disadvantaged communities. The program design
has been completed and presented to international cooperation agencies for financing. The GOES
approved the Law for First Employment to open job opportunities for youth. A conference between GOES
institutions related to this goal and USG representatives including partners from USG funded projects
took place to present relevant activities, improve communication and coordination.
