The project also incorporates people with disabilities.

Three young women from Siuna, from different careers, are part of the Apprenticeship Initiative project, which has URACCAN in articulation with the Aprendo y Emprendo project, executed in the Caribbean with USAID funds to help in-experience youth acquire skills in different professional fields and enter the local labor market.

Silvan Fagan, coordinator of the Graduate Monitoring area of URACCAN Bluefields, arrived in Siuna to expose the scope of this project to the three young women who are part of it and to the authorities of the Las Minas campus.

Fagan detailed that the Aprenticeship Iniciative project is aimed at graduate graduates and finalist students of URACCAN careers who have no work experiences other than their professional practices.

"The project is changing the way companies recruit staff, there are 12 companies that decided to change; our students have no work experience, but they have countless theoretical, practical knowledge that they can develop and contribute to change in institutions," Fagan said.

Fagan said they are on the Siuna campus to promote the project and definitely hire three young people on the project, which covers the payment of three months of work experience and will be done in the form of a scholarship to carry out certain activities.

The three young women who will be in Siuna will serve as administrative assistant, human talent assistant and are positions of great responsibility, this is not a course or internship, but a job that will allow them to acquire experiences that will serve them in their future aspirations with other companies.

Angelica Leonor Ruiz Calderon Ph. D., vice-chancellor of URACCAN Las Minas, said this is an initiative that allows students to have resources for a while and acquire experiences that serve them for their professional resume.

In total, there are 28 young people, from the URACCAN enclosures in Bluefields, Las Minas, New Guinea and Bilwi, who will perform in different areas and companies of the Caribbean Coast. This institutional and business benefit also includes people with disabilities.
