About the initiative
Building bridges to the future
Redes al Futuro targets young people aged 14-18 years living in the communities where our distribution centers are located to promote their professional training and first access to employment. Participants can apply to Mercado Libre for available jobs, and can also receive support in joining other companies, mainly from the logistics sector, to access professional insertion.
How it works
Redes al Futuro (Networks for the future) is implemented in partnership with Instituto Aliança and Senai from Brazil, and Fundación Forge from Argentina and Mexico. During the five months of training, topics aim to develop technical and socio-emotional skills.
+1,000 young people trained under the Redes al Futuro (Networks for the future) program between 2020 and 2021.
20% of participants hired by Mercado Libre distribution centers.
