In Latin America and the Caribbean, many young people lack the skills required for employment. The fundamental challenge in Guatemala is that many youth leave school without developing the minimal technical competencies that employers require. Those that remain in school do not have experience with the real labor market. These gaps need to be addressed in order to provide youth access to employment and improve the labor market. This technical brief features mentoring and apprenticeships as two tools in an education and youth workforce development strategy that can facilitate a young person’s journey from education to employment, with a particular focus on the Guatemalan context.
