Does Sport-Based Workforce Training Work for At-Risk Youth in LAC?: Final Results from the A Ganar Randomized Control Trial in Honduras
Social Impact will present final results of a USAID-funded six-year randomized control trial of the A Ganar workforce development program in Honduras. Implemented by Partners of the Americas, A Ganar uses sports-based life skills activities, vocational training, internships and follow-on support to combat youth unemployment. The evaluation used mixed-methods to measure impacts on employment, entrepreneurship, and return to school, as well as intermediate (e.g. technical skills) and secondary outcomes (e.g. risk behavior, life skills, gender norms).
