Young 320

Abstract

With millions of children facing economic independence at a very young age due to poverty, war, and AIDS, youth enterprise programs provide job skills, and training for starting and operating a business. Through Help and Hope Centers, Andean Aid (www.andeanaid.org) provides young people with a safe, clean well-lit environment for doing homework. Tutors and teachers provide guidance and encouragement. Our research findings offer strategies for integrating business skills, career competencies, technical training, and financial education into Andean Aid's existing programs for young people in Venezuela and Colombia
