The effect of the COVID-19 crisis and the ensuing acceleration of the digital economy have emphasized the need for the OAS Member States to address the gaps in skills and readiness of its workforce and citizens. Women, minorities, youth and unskilled workers were among the most impacted with increased poverty, inequality and diminished opportunities for social mobility.

We are expanding quickly, and welcome cooperation offers from public, private and academic institutions to share basic and advanced training in transformative technologies, remote labs, mentoring, courses and certifications on digital skills and for Industry 4.0. for the youth of the Americas.
