Precursor to NEO recognized by the UN as a best practice in youth employment

From 2001 to 2011, more than 135,000 young people benefitted from participation in entra21, which provided disadvantaged youth ages 16 to 29 in 22 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean with job training and placement services. With primary support from the Multilateral Investment Fund of the Inter-American Development Bank and implemented by the International Youth Foundation, entra21’s emphasis on alliance-building, evaluating and refining approaches, and scaling up through government partnerships served as the foundation for the creation of NEO.

UNICEF, in collaboration with the American University of Beirut, recognized entra21 as a skills development best practice in their recent publication, Good Practices in Adolescent and Youth Programming. After identifying more than 200 global projects, UNICEF and AUB selected entra21 as one of the 11 best practices in skills development worldwide.
