Research Brief: Technology for employability in Latin America

At-risk youth and people with disabilities

Abstract

This research brief summarizes the larger TASCHA study conducted in 2009 which found that community technology centers in Latin America serving at-risk youth and people with disabilities provide services that can lead to employment — but they need to emphasize employer outreach, complementary services, community participation in program management, longer-term funding, and policies that engage workplace law and increase access to low-cost assistive technologies.
