Technology for Employability in Latin America: Research with At‐risk Youth & People with Disabilities

Compiled by the Center for Information & Society at the University of Washington.

This study examines the recent investment into computer centers providing basic technology training for people with disabilities and at‐risk youth in five Latin American countries: Brazil, Ecuador, Guatemala, Mexico, and Venezuela. The authors discuss the ways in which technology training impacts the employability concerns of two populations with diverse needs and histories of social and economic exclusion from formal labor markets. Read Dr. Joyojeet Pal's review.
