According to a UN Population Fund Study, the number of working-age individuals in different countries continues to increase. The study had highlighted different opportunities to build industries and improve economies. This is something that Metalsa from Mexico intends to enrich in the youth of Mexico.
Metalsa is an organisation dedicated to inspiring young people to develop the necessary skills and knowledge in the manufacturing industry by promoting science and technology. Metalsa also promotes sustainable methods and models for youth employment.
They also focus on quality issues especially the employee’s ties with their families. They also implement a corporate citizenship program that protects the environment. As part of its sustainable development, Metalsa intends to develop the communities where it operates.
Community development is very important for Metalsa. Its programs center on developing technical and engineering skills and knowledge in young people to reduce dropout rates in low-income schools.
Mexico has the highest number of youth aged 15-24 dropping out of school.
In the first phase of the program, teachers and facilitators allow students to build structures based on the principles of force and motion, measurement, energy and magnetism. Then, in the second phase, students will have to make their theoretical frameworks function, generating proposals and participating in actual operations projects in a Metalsa facility.
