Juvempleo

The Juvempleo service of the Youth Development Program offers the first employment opportunity to many people aged 18 to 29 who are enrolled in their last year of a technical, vocational, associate, bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral degree. Its vision is to increase employment opportunities for young students, contributing to their professional formation and easing their transition to the workforce. With this initiative we seek to contribute to Puerto Rico’s socioeconomic development in an innovative way.
