ENGLISH VERSION

Our project in Bolívar has concluded and we will continue the empowerment of youngsters through the training programs in technology in other cities in Colombia.

During 2019, in parallel to our program in Bolívar, we conducted a pilot program in software programming with young people from vulnerable communities in alliance with the Secretary of Education of Medellin and Sofka Technologies. This program has been successful and our goal in 2020 is to replicate it under the framework of our great project of Empowering 100 youngsters for work in Colombia.

Medellín is the fundamental axis of the fourth industrial revolution in Latin America. It has within its city plan the goal to 2021 to train 19,000 human talents in information technology. That is why we have planned to link youngsters from official schools in Medellín, coming from the most depressed communes, to this ambitious city plan and at the same time offer them opportunities for employment in a sector that so much demands it.

Each program consists of 25 scholarships that include:

 - Programming training

- Transportation to and from training sessions

- One feeding during each session

- Study kit

- Pedagogical field trips

We have decided to continue with the expansion of the Empowering 100 youngsters program for work in Colombia, and bet on the realization of 4 programs in 2020 focusing their training in technology.

¡We thank you for all the support and invite you to continue contributing to this great commitment with youngsters and Colombia!

 

VERSION EN ESPAÑOL

¡Nos vamos a Medellín!

Nuestro proyecto en Bolívar ha concluido y vamos a darle continuidad al empoderamiento de jóvenes a través de su formación en tecnología en otras ciudades de Colombia.

Durante 2019, de manera paralela a nuestro programa en Bolívar, realizamos un piloto de formación en programación de software con jóvenes de comunidades vulnerables en Medellín en alianza con la Secretaría de Educación y Sofka Technologies. Este programa ha sido exitoso y nuestro objetivo en 2020 es replicarlo bajo el marco de nuestro gran proyecto de Empoderando a 100 jóvenes para el trabajo en Colombia.

Medellín es eje fundamental de la cuarta revolución industrial en América Latina. Tiene dentro de su plan de ciudad la meta al 2021 de formar 19,000 talentos humanos en tecnologías de información. Es por eso que hemos proyectado vincular a los jóvenes de colegios oficiales de Medellín, provenientes de las comunas mas deprimidas, a este gran plan y al mismo tiempo ofrecerles posibilidades de vinculación laboral en un sector que tanto lo demanda.

Cada programa consiste en 25 becas que incluyen:

-          Formación en programación

-          Transporte desde y hacia las sesiones formativas

-          Una alimentación durante cada sesión

-          Kit de estudio

-          Visitas pedagógicas

Hemos decidido continuar con la expansión del programa Empoderando a 100 Jóvenes para el trabajo en Colombia, y apostarle a la realización de 4 programas en el 2020 enfocando su formación en tecnología.

¡Te agradecemos todo el apoyo y te invitamos a continuar aportando a esta gran apuesta por los jóvenes y por nuestro país!
