We are born out of the observation of a contemporary paradox: on one hand an extremely high youth unemployment rate, on the other hand an enormous employment opportunity in the Information Technology sector.
We believe that although learning to read and write code is hard work, it actually means many more jobs. We’re on a mission: reprogram lives by teaching code.
And since we’ll do whatever it takes to reach our goals, we’ve been recruiting brilliant minds, who couldn’t find a job in their respective areas of training, transforming them–over 14 weeks and +650 hours of intense immersion in pure and simple code culture–from brave <Code Cadets> into determined <Padawan Developers>.
<CodeForAll_Kids> was born from the dream of including programming in school curricula around the world, from 1st grade to University.
Through our platform <CodeForAll_Kids>, we introduce children to the fantastic world of programming language, while stimulating their logical reasoning, problem solving and creativity.
Our Herculean task for these young programmers? Make them code pioneers so that, in the future, we may expand this beta version to all primary schools in the world, integrating basic programming skills into the education system.
