One of the major causes of inequality in Latin America is the existence of a culture of rigid social and racial classes that hinder the social mobility of those who belong to the lower social-economic sectors. Therefore, the young people of the disadvantaged sectors have not only less possibilities to access higher education, but also to establish themselves in the system with success. 

These young people do not always rely on a previous adequate educational basis, nor on study materials or social networks that allow them to defy  academic challenges, such as access to the labor market under unequal conditions. Consequently, SPRING tries to reduce the shortage of links between the educative institutions and the labor market, by means of a methodology based on education, training and the application of prosocial values: That is to say, in what allows effective reciprocal and horizontal knowledge and which aims at social diversity.
