DevTech is tasked with undertaking performance evaluations for three Argentina-based technical assistance projects funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Child Labor, Forced Labor, and Human Trafficking. These three projects are:
- The Child Labor Elimination in Agriculture in Argentina (PAR) project, which aims to build the capacity of labor and agriculture stakeholders to more effectively implement the National Action Plan on Child Labor and coordinate efforts to combat child labor;
- The Project to Promote Workplace-Based Training for Vulnerable Youth in Argentina (NOEMI) project, which is designed to raise the visibility and understanding of child labor in agriculture in Argentina and contributing to improved tools and coordination among government entities, the private sector, and civil society to confront the problem. It focuses on the provinces of Tucumán, Misiones, and Buenos Aires;
- The Improving the Capacity of Labor and Agriculture Stakeholders to Address Child Labor in Agricultural Areas of Argentina (OFFSIDE) project, which is working to bridge the skills gap in Argentina by increasing the number and quality of on-the-job training programs, such as internships and apprenticeships, while ensuring these opportunities are accessible to the youth who need them the most.
