The Pro United Nations Chilean Association (ACHNU) will use Nokia’s assistance in the launch of a new three-year program, Conectate! to boost youth development in Chile. Conectate or Get Connected, aims to help young people find employment and reach their potential.

The program draws on partnerships with Chilean industry, providing internships and aligning the program with the needs of Chilean employers.

We also believe that strengthening the capacity of valuable organizations like ACHNU is a positive step towards this goal.
