HackYourFuture teaches software development to refugees
The demand for talented software developers is growing rapidly.
Yet many people who have left their country involuntarily are unable to use their abilities, lacking access to training and professional networks.
We put that potential to good use. Training refugees in computer programming significantly boosts their chances of fulfilling, long-term employment, whilst increasing the number of developers on the job market. That’s a win-win situation.
Results until today
Our measure of success is simple - do our graduates find a job? Therefore our selection process is rigorous and the program is tough; not everyone who starts our course graduates. After finishing the program, we guide our students towards employment through our network of tech professionals.
Our approach is working: Over 90% of our graduates have gone on to secure employment.
How our school works
Our coding school teaches a 6-month full-stack web development program. The curriculum is created and taught by our volunteer network of over forty professional developers.
HackYourFuture teaches every Sunday. We pay for students’ travel, so our students can join us from all over the country. In addition to our in-person teaching sessions, we coach and support our students online throughout the week.
