Challenge

The Province of Tucuman is the smallest in Argentina and the most densely populated. It has 1,767,500 and records 899,154 people living in poverty. Almost half (49.6%) of young people between 15 and 29 years of age are in a situation of poverty, which distances them from the right to education, training and employability.

Solution

Future Coders is a Fundacion Leon program aimed at young people from Tucuman who live in vulnerable contexts and with difficulties to be linked to technological resources. In coordination with companies, the program aims to democratize technology. It provides training in programming and digital languages and first training and employment opportunities for its recipients. Students also receive support in social skills and are able to engage in learning experiences.

Long-Term Impact

Young people trained in computer languages and inserted in the working world of coding, are people capable of responding to the demands of the modern world.
