Challenge

With the economy suffering due to the Covid pandemic and people losing their jobs especially in the tourism business, many hard-working Thai people are forced to find a new occupation. The ever-growing IT industry seems out of reach because businesses will not generally hire people without IT degrees. In addition, while there are many resources (most in English) to help people learn skills online, just taking some basic classes will not be enough to convince businesses to hire them.

Solution

Our IT Academy Plus provides a basic IT Fundamentals course to help unemployed adults from one industry determine if they could pursue further skills to get an IT job. Promising students apply for our work-study program to learn web development skills and Life Ed. (English, character, life skills, etc). This is followed by an Apprenticeship for professional development and real experience working on projects for other non-profits which will fully prepare apprentices to find an IT job.

Long-Term Impact

After training, professional experience, and a portfolio of projects, students will be prepared for a new career in IT and will have helped other non-profits use IT to improve their ability to serve others. Prepared for long-term success, they will help bring economic growth as well as benefiting society through future volunteer services with family and community-oriented non-profits.
