The IT industry is growing rapidly and the need for talented people is too. We will train refugees on the technologies companies need and with companies’ help, we will be able to offer them an opportunity to get back on their career paths in the countries they are living in without moving to Switzerland.
Powercoders is expanding internationally with the support of the Swiss government to empower Swiss IT companies to fill their lack of IT talents besides creating social impact.
In a pilot project, we have teamed up with an organization called Kodluyoruz. Together we will be offering in Turkey talented refugees intensive training on the technologies you need followed by remote internships to sharpen their skills with industry experience. This means our participants stay in Turkey and work for you remotely.
Are you a company in IT or have an IT department? Are you looking for talented people? and willing to invest in human capital and support a great cause?
We need your support by offering remote internships (6 to 12 months) to our participants. The conditions are flexible and can be defined together.

It is a project in which Powercoders started with the support of the Swiss government and in partnership with Kodluyoruz, a coding school in Turkey, to offer highly qualified refugees the opportunity to get back on their career paths in the countries they are living in without the need to move to Switzerland.
Powercoders is a coding academy for refugees designed for the integration of refugees in the IT sector. The programme has been implemented in Switzerland with a 97% placement rate for trainees and a 60% employment integration rate. With this proof of concept, Powercoders International plans to expand abroad with a sustainable model.
Kodluyoruz is a nonprofit working to make Turkey a talent hub by creating employment pathways for young people, especially women, seeking careers in technology sector. Kodluyoruz Academy provides bootcamps (3-month technical and soft skills trainings) that prepare driven, disadvantaged young people, ages 20-29, for employment in high value technology fields.
If you are an IT company or you have an IT department, you can support us by offering our participants internships (remotely) and support them to sharpen their skills and get ready for a job. This is a win-win, you invest in the human capital and eventually hire a talented person.
