Moving forward with our youngsters!

Jovenes creaTIvos 1
Jovenes creaTIvos 1

Time flies, especially when you are passionate about what you do. This is what we have experienced in this first half year, in which we have worked tirelessly to start the 2021 programs, starting with our flagship program Jóvenes creaTIvos that this year we hope to grow with respect to 2020.

Our efforts so far this year have been aimed at finding more allies, which will allow us not only to grow in the number of beneficiaries but also in regions. For this, we have strengthened our work team in the areas of alliances and communications mainly, in the search for those allies with whom we share values and objectives, highly valuing the quality of our allies and the added value that we can generate through our joint work. We are pleased that as a result of this management in the first quarter, Fundación Renault has joined as our ally. An ally that, just like us, is committed to young people and education as the engine of transformation of our country.

In parallel, in February we began the selection process for the first group of Jóvenes creaTIvos, and we want to share with you the summary of what this exercise was:

  • February 15 to 28 - Reception of applications. We received 503 applications in Medellín and Envigado.
  • March 1 - 8: Phase Two. 260 Young people who met the sociodemographic pass to phase two, in which we evaluate their logical aptitude.
  • March 8 - 15: Evaluation of candidates for finalists.
  • March 20: Finalists Session. 180 young people are interviewed in a day in which 18 jurors participated and which allowed us to learn about factors such as the determination, conviction, and resilience of the applicants.
  • March 23: Announcement of selected. 90 young people are invited to be part of the third cohort of creative Youth
  • March 23 - March 30: Confirmation of quotas, delivery of binding documents.
  • April 13-15: Delivery of Study Kits. In the midst of the restrictions generated by the third peak of COVID-19, the face-to-face inauguration set for April 10 is canceled, and the delivery of study kits is coordinated at the STEM and CEFIT Nursery headquarters.
  • April 17: Virtual Welcome Session. In two sessions, the welcome and introduction to the program was carried out, with a greeting from the allies, and with a virtual tour of the learning platform.
  • April 24: Mindfulness workshop
  • May 1 - 22: Soft skills Training

We know that we have remained very focused on these tasks, but we are satisfied to be able to share it with you: our sponsors and allies, with concrete facts that support the progress in our goals for this year.

We face new learning challenges, new projects that allow us to expand our impact on vulnerable populations. We will be updating about the progress in this new challenge in our next newsletter. 

Thank you for the support, thank you for the trust, thank you for being energy of transformation. ¡Thank you for being ROFÉ!

SPANISH VERSION

El tiempo vuela, sobre todo cuando te apasiona lo que haces. Es lo que hemos vivido en este primer trimestre, en el que hemos trabajado incansablemente para dar inicio a los programas de 2021, empezando con nuestro programa bandera Jóvenes creaTIvos que este año esperamos pueda crecer con respecto al 2020.

Nuestros esfuerzos en lo corrido del año han estado encaminados a la búsqueda de más aliados, lo cual nos permitirá no sólo crecer en número de beneficiarios sino también en regiones. Para ello, hemos robustecido nuestro equipo de trabajo en las áreas de alianzas y comunicaciones principalmente, en la búsqueda de esos aliados con los que compartamos principios y objetivos, valorando mucho la calidad de nuestros aliados y el valor agregado que podemos generar a través de nuestro trabajo conjunto. Nos complace que como resultado de esta gestión en el primer trimestre se ha sumado como aliado ROFÉ la Fundación Renault. Un aliado que al igual que nosotros le apuesta a los jóvenes y a la educación como motor de transformación de nuestro entorno.

En paralelo, en febrero iniciamos el proceso de selección para el primer grupo de Jóvenes creaTIvos, y les queremos compartir el resumen de lo que fue este ejercicio:

  • Febrero 15 al 28 – Recepción de aplicaciones. Recibimos 503 aplicaciones en Medellín y Envigado.
  • Marzo 1 – 8: Fase Dos. 260 Jóvenes que cumplían con el sociodemográfico pasan a fase dos, en la que evaluamos su aptitud lógica.
  • Marzo 8 – 15: Evaluación de candidatos a finalistas.
  • Marzo 20: Sesión de Finalistas. 180 jóvenes son entrevistados en una jornada en la que participaron 18 jurados y que nos permitió conocer de cerca factores como la determinación, convicción, y resiliencia de los aplicantes.
  • Marzo 23: Anuncio de seleccionados. 90 jóvenes son convocados a hacer parte de la tercera cohorte de Jóvenes creaTIvos
  • Marzo 23 – Marzo 30: Confirmación de cupos, entrega de documentos de vinculación.
  • Abril 13-15: Entrega de Kits de Estudio. En medio de las restricciones generadas por el tercer pico de COVID-19, se cancela la inauguración presencial fijada para el 10 de abril, y se coordina la entrega de los kits de estudio en las sedes del Vivero STEM y el CEFIT.
  • Abril 17: Sesión de Bienvenida virtual. En dos sesiones se llevó a cabo la bienvenida e introducción al programa, con un saludo por parte de los aliados, y con un tour virtual a la plataforma de aprendizaje.
  • Abril 24: Primera sesión Mindfulness.
  • Mayo 1-22: Habilidades esenciales para emprendedores del SXXI

Sabemos que nos hemos mantenido muy concentrados en estas labores, pero nos sentimos satisfechos de poder compartirlo con ustedes: nuestros padrinos y aliados, con hechos concretos que avalan en el progreso en nuestras metas para este año.

Nos enfrentamos a nuevos retos de aprendizaje, a nuevos proyectos que nos permitan ampliar nuestro impacto en poblaciones vulnerables. Del avance en este nuevo reto, les estaremos hablando en nuestro próximo boletín. ¡Estén atentos!

Gracias por el apoyo, gracias por la confianza, gracias por ser energía transformadora. ¡Gracias por ser ROFÉ!
