To help create a better future for young Amazonians, state deputy Roberto Cidade (UB), president of the Legislative Assembly of Amazonas (Aleam), presented and had approved by the plenary of the House, Bill No. 14/2023, which creates the “Oportunidade Jovem” program. The measure aims to generate job opportunities for young people aged between 15 and 29.
“We have to develop broad and comprehensive public policies that can actually guarantee qualification, employment and income for Amazonians. Our proposal also aims to encourage employers to hire young people who are part of the program, especially those from families with greater vulnerability Social. This way we will also be contributing to the State’s economy”, he defended.
The program aims to ensure that low-income young people are encouraged to carry out professional experimentation activities; to remain in or return to the classroom to complete educational years; that they are encouraged to act purposefully in their neighborhoods, through the development of community activities that improve their quality of life; and encourage income generation in the local economy.
The initiative also provides for financial aid to be allocated to cover travel expenses, to carry out community and training activities, which can be carried out for a minimum period of six months and a maximum of two years, consecutive or not.
