In Argentina, high school dropout rates are close to 50 percent, and 1 in 3 unemployed people are young adults.
Reciduca prepares and places low-income high school graduates in positions at local companies. The social enterprise provides training and paid internship opportunities to the students who remain in high school, as a deterrent against dropping out. Reciduca plans to scale the number of students placed in the next four years.
