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
During this period, 446 youth who received vocational training by the USG obtained employment or started a micro-enterprise. Through another program, the USG trained 289 youth and provided start-up funds to 106 participants for microenterprises. A GOES temporary employment program, supported by the USG, trained over 2,250 primarily urban youth beneficiaries in job and life skills. Under the San Salvador Metropolitan Area Project’s Pact for Security and Employment the GOES trained 70 youth in
Soyapango and Ilopango in starting micro-enterprises and provided seed capital. The GOES inaugurated a youth penitentiary that offers vocational training, including carpentry, metalwork, tailoring, handicrafts, and agriculture for youth rehabilitation. Additionally, the GOES is beginning two pilot social and economic inclusion projects for at-risk youth, supported by other international donors, with activities in San Vicente, Cojutepeque, San Pedro Perulapán, Zacatecoluca, and Ciudad Delgado. The
GOES’s National Strategy for Violence Prevention, launched in February, includes youth as a target group for prevention activities.
