THE RE:CODED EFFECT

HOW OUR APPROACH IS PREPARING REFUGEES AND UNDERSERVED YOUTH FOR THE FUTURE OF WORK

BUL_5939.JPG

In partnership with Udacity and Flatiron School, we offer intensive in-person bootcamps for conflict affected youth. Our students don't just become great developers, they become great leaders. 


OUR MODEL 

We identify people with AN aptitude for coding, train them, expose them to real-life projects, and then help place them in tech jobs

IDENTIFY TALENT

We run a rigorous four phase selection process (application, coding challenge and two interviews) to identify youth between 17-30 years of age who are highly motivated and have an aptitude for coding.

CODING

In our 6-month bootcamp, students gain the technical and team skills needed to work as front-end or mobile developers in the best companies locally or abroad. They also find a new community who support them and push them to thrive in the tech sector.

JOB PLACEMENT

Our graduates find employment as developers, interns, trainers and freelancers. Some also take steps to start their own tech companies. But more importantly, they become leaders in their communities.
