In an initiative that demonstrates the strength of teamwork and the social commitment of the new generations, twenty young participants of the Professional Skills Acceleration Program visited the Foundation School of Solidarity on February 5th. This meeting, more than just a simple visit, turned into a day of collaboration and mutual learning.

The Foundation School of Solidarity, known for its tireless work in support of vulnerable communities, opened its doors to this group of young people with the aim of developing essential skills in the modern working world, such as teamwork, effective communication, and management of collaborative projects. But, beyond technical training, this experience sought to instill values of solidarity and empathy in the program’s participants, demonstrating that professional success is also measured by the positive impact on society.

During the day, program participants listened to testimonies from the Founder, Ignacio Pereda, as well as from people who are or have been beneficiaries of the services provided by this Foundation. Pilar Guillén and Alejandra Vílchez from Alight Solutions, the sponsoring company of the Program, also accompanied them on this occasion. As a result of getting to know the Foundation, the 20 young people established an action plan to help cover some of the most pressing needs of the entity. From organizing fundraising events to developing concrete actions to help improve facilities or implement educational programs, the young people have set out to work side by side with the members of the foundation.

This initiative not only benefits the Foundation School of Solidarity but also represents a valuable learning opportunity for the involved youths. “This experience of contact with the reality of poverty and extreme need has been truly enriching,” commented one of the participants. “We learned that true leadership involves serving others and that, by working together, we can make a significant difference.”

This event is an example of collaboration between the educational sector and non-profit organizations, demonstrating the power of education in shaping committed and supportive citizens, and constituting a model to follow for the training of future generations of business and social leaders.

In a month and a half, the young participants will have a new Day where they will show the results of the teamwork and solidarity actions they are going to develop in the coming weeks to meet the collaboration commitments they have acquired with the Foundation.
