Challenge

Brazil has 13.4M unemployed, in this scenario people in vulnerability are the most affected. Research by KornFerry Institute points out that the technology industries are short of 1.1M in skilled workers worldwide. It is in this context that Alpha EdTech brings the opportunity for society to strengthen people, with equity of gender, race and ethnicity, in the direction of their lives, enabling social mobility through technology.

Solution

The project is an opportunity to address inequalities, strengthening the employability and socio-emotional skills of socially vulnerable people, empowering them to improve their lives and also inspiring them to become transformative leaders in society.It builds a bridge to a social insertion, offering a specialized paid IT training and then offering jobs by Partners.The initiative involves people,companies and institutions through the democratization of knowledge into a network of transformation

Long-Term Impact

By selecting these talented people, we expect to convert hidden and socially vulnerable talents into very active transformational leaders of the near future promoting exponential waves of improvements in our societies.Also,sponsor companies will benefit from having specialized labor but also with soft skills that can potentially drive changes in their ESG mindsets.These transformational leaders will also energize the fight against discrimination,prejudice and inequality.
