Empleando Futuros Youth Training and Job Insertion Workforce Development Model

The Empleando Futuros project employs a positive youth development (PYD) model that builds capacity across individuals and communities to achieve Result 1: Train 7,500 at-risk youth and insert 3,750 at-risk youth into the job market. The Empleando Futuros training model includes: life skills; cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT); basic labor competencies; technical/vocational training; and job insertion. Each at-risk youth is assigned a mentor that assists him or her in staying in the training program, supports job placement, and continues to provide guidance throughout the work experience.
