We believe in promoting equal opportunities for diverse talents in the IT industry. Our goal is to open the doors to the labor market for IT-skilled refugees and migrants so that they can regain their independence. We are a non-profit organization that depends on the commitment of many incredible volunteers – people who truly make a difference.

“Accompanying Powercoders participants on their journeys as a job coach is a deeply rewarding experience. The icing on the cake is when the participant is offered a permanent position at the end of the internship, and has an opportunity to gain financial independence.”
“My experience as an IT trainer with Powercoders confirms the talent that refugees and migrants bring to the table and how much they can contribute if given a chance. For myself, I get to keep my IT skills fresh, understand how students learn best, and discover other cultures and life experiences. Everyone gets a lot out of it.”
“On joining Powercoders, I was truly impressed by the quality and dedication of all the people involved, professionals and volunteers alike. And the coachees are amazing : talented, hard workers, highly motivated, yet vulnerable, humble and immensely grateful. It’s a honour to stand on their side.”
“Taking additional responsibility and giving back something with a value is my motivation and that’s also the reason why I am again with Powercoders. For me personally it’s a win-win, I learn about other cultures and have realized even more that the place of birth is sth to be thankful for.”
