This description of Miguel Rosales Ruiz's work was prepared when Miguel Rosales Ruiz was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2000.
Miguel Rosales has tackled the massive problem of youth unemployment in Venezuela by "segmenting the market" and abandoning the "one size fits all" approach of many traditional government-sponsored employment training programs. Instead, Miguel has created a comprehensive program which recognizes the diverse interests and potential of young people and channels them to appropriately matched workplace training opportunities, from apprenticeship programs, to training in basic office skills and information systems, to small business entrepreneurship.
