Partners of the Americas’ purpose is captured in their name.  They build partnerships that create opportunity, foster understanding, and solve real-life problems.  The Partners Network is comprised of volunteers and development professionals who are committed to serving others.  Their partnerships are built around the core structure of chapters in countries and states that form north/south partnerships.  In addition, they form inter-institutional partnerships between northern and southern universities, development agencies and civic organizations.  Inspired by President Kennedy and founded in 1964 under the Alliance for Progress, Partners is a non-profit, non-partisan organization with international offices in Washington, DC.
Through them the Skills for The Future Program executes its A Ganar programme in secondary schools and select tertiary institutions.

As labour markets become more specialised and economies demand higher levels of skill, governments and businesses are increasingly investing in technical and vocational education and training (TVET). The TVET Council (TVETC) was set up to direct young people and others towards training and certification which they can use to develop work-related skills and exciting careers.
