This program prevents dropout and promotes school completion seeking to stimulate students who are in their last two years of high school. We seek to help students with the school-to-work transition offering job training out of school hours to introduce young people to the culture of work and to improve their employability. It is focused on three main fields: study, job training and environmental care.
