Mexico: Cemex is joining the Global Alliance for Youth (All4YOUth), a business alliance of more than 200 companies that seeks to strengthen the capabilities of young people between the ages of 18 and 29 years to enter the professional world. Founded by Nestlé in 2014, All4YOUth is a scheme intended to help young people around the world to acquire business skills. Its aim is to reduce school dropout rates, contribute to young people’s employability, and to help them develop their skills for the workplace of today and tomorrow.
Cemex says that its participation in the alliance will help more than 65,000 young people by 2022. Until now, the company’s social programs have already reached 34,000 youth through the New Employment Opportunities (NEO) alliance, with 60% formal job placement within six months.
