El presente documento presenta una medición de impacto del programa de capacitación laboral juvenil PROJoven. Se utilizó información socio-laboral de una muestra de beneficiarios y un conjunto de individuos que conformaron el grupo de control. Esta información fue recogida antes de iniciados los cursos de capacitación de la sexta convocatoria (línea de base) y después de seis meses de concluido el programa por parte de los jóvenes beneficiarios (primera medición de salida). La muestra total de beneficiarios disponible para la evaluación fue de 1,018, representando poco menos del 30% del total de jóvenes atendidos en la sexta convocatoria de PROJoven. Asimismo, se contó con información para 1,561 potenciales controles, es decir, individuos que poseen características comparables a las de los beneficiarios pero que no fueron parte del programa. El objetivo es comparar la nueva situación económica de los beneficiarios, como consecuencia de su participación en PROJoven, con la situación que hubiesen alcanzado en el caso de no haber asistido al programa.
