Program

Powercoders Program

Powercoders is a coding academy for refugees. We believe that in the 21st century coding skills will help refugees start a new life wherever they are forced to go.

We offer a 3-month coding boot camp, followed by an internship. The ultimate goal of Powercoders is the permanent placement of trained refugees in IT-companies and IT-departments.


The program

In order to be able to run the program, we are dependent on the support of the IT industry providing internships as well as on volunteers who either support the class teacher during school phase as IT Trainers or accompany participants during their internships as Job Coaches.
