My First Decent Job
Description: The programme Mi Primer Empleo Digno was created in 2008, inspired in the former programme Mi Primer Empleo, implemented by the municipal Government of La Paz. It has the objective to facilitate and improve the labour insertion of young people between 18 and 24 years old with limited economic resources, that reached the 2d year of secondary school in the urban and peri-urban areas of La Paz, Cochabamba and Santa Cruz, improving their employability conditions in the labour market, through training programmes and internship. The programme execution is made through a registry and selection of the Capacitation Institute (Institutos de Capacitación, ICAP) that are responsible for the training in accordance to the market demands; and of the companies where the internship takes place and of labour insertion. In In both cases there is no consideration about how to confront the labour segmentation by sex and year that predominates in the labour market and the employment structures. The programme is executed through Employment Promotion Units, whose creation at the department level is part of its mandate.
