Since we are facing the reality of Covid-19 around the world, we have had to change our relation with aspects like work,shooping and social interaction.
During 2021 we are promoving programing skills 100% virtual. Nowadays, we have 3 groups of youth who developed the bootcamp trought virtuality, and we are planning around 6 more groups during this year.
In June a group of 16 youth were certified as junior front-end developers. This group started an employability process to access better opportunities in the IT sector. Currently, 04 of them are working in companies related to technology and they are applying the knowledge that they acquire during the Bootcamp.
We expect that during 2021 around 100 will be employed in IT sector work.
These jobs represent the started point in the programming area. We still working with other youth who are looking for alternatives in STEM to improve their living conditions.
The digital literacy projects for Venezuelans have been oriented in recent months to direct training processes in which different young people have developed digital skills, from programming using tools such as Arduino, betting on developing skills for employment in programming and web development with training programs in front end and back end, accompanying the training with support in contact with employability, managing to link the majority of the beneficiaries to jobs as junior programmers.
Some of this programs have been oriented to also help people with dissabilities (PCD) and women, reaching more cities and towns, being able to help rural young people to develop abilities in tech used in the 4.0 industry.

Girls in Tech: World of oportunities
By Project Cordinator - Cordinator
During 2021 we faced great challenges, but we also found opportunities to improve our work and inspire young people to consider technology as an alternative for life. In 2021 we are training 53 geeks in coding skills, employability and 21st century skills. 94% of those trained have a job in the TECH industry and they are generating income that contributes to the improvement of their quality of life. Part of our 2020 goals is inclusion, 36 women are now frontdeveloper, and 31 of them are working or studying in areas related with TECH. Also we had a version called Academia Geek Ser + Capaces, focused on people with disabilities who finish their training in December 2020. 27 persons concluded the formation. During January they will socialize their final projects and they will be starting the employability process. Thanks to all for the support during 2020. This year we have big dreams. Together we are stronger. Links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkGT2qmd3jE
