CUSO-VSO working with unemployed youth in Peru

In poor districts of Lima, Peru, youth unemployment is high and job-hunting skills are few. CUSO-VSO volunteers and a Peruvian NGO give them a leg up. 

A new youth employment centre is a collaboration of CUSO-VSO, the Quebec NGO Carrefour Jeunesse Emploi de l'Outaouais, and the Peruvian NGO Kallpa. It is financed in part by the Canadian International Development Agency and the Quebec Ministry of International Relations.

Produced with the support of the Government of Canada through the Canadian International Development Agency.
