One of CRUSA’s strategic objectives for 2018-2022 is the fostering of a participatory, values-based educational model as part of the reinforcement of social and economic dynamics characterized by cooperation and trust between sectors.
Through CRUSA Scholarships we encourage education in strategic areas for the country’s future, such as technical education, human capital creation in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, and fields in the so-called “orange” or creative economy.
We also finance the creation of a Job and Vocational Guidance Platform designed to develop the human talent sought by the job market.
Job and Vocational Guidance Platform
The idea of this job and vocational guidance platform is to develop the human talent needed by the job market through an employability diagnosis, short courses and certification training.
The digital platform will use cognitive and artificial intelligence systems to guide youths in identifying existing job market opportunities and the competencies they will need for finding jobs.
Our partners in this program are CINDE (the Costa Rican Investment Promotion Agency) and IDB-MIF (the Inter-American Development Bank’s Multilateral Investment Fund).
The platform’s beneficiaries are students completing their high school studies, unemployed job seekers, and job holders who need skill refreshing or professional retraining to stay employed.
