When the winds of change blow, some people build walls, some others build windmills

What we do

  • We help our students become software developers by training them on computer programming. No prior coding experience is needed, just basic computing skills.
  • We guide them to start their professional career. We assign mentors to coach them, prepare them for employment, and support them through our network to find a job. Then it is up to them how far they will go. Only the sky is the limit!

Why we do it

There is a lot of talent and will among young people in Greece, but at the same time, the unemployment rate in the country is the highest in Europe. On the other hand, there is a huge demand in the job market for software developers. This an opportunity for a win-win situation. By re-skilling these young people in coding, we increase their chances of employment significantly, and at the same time, we help companies to find the skilled people they are looking for.

For whom we do it

We teach young people from vulnerable groups (e.g., Greek unemployed, refugees, migrants, etc.) who want to start their career as software developers. We’re looking for people who are highly talented, motivated, and willing to put in a lot of hours to become great at coding. All applicants must have at least an intermediate level in English (after all, English is the universal language of coding).

How we do it

In our code school, we combine training in the classroom from experienced educators and software engineers, with an e-Learning platform we have built. This combination makes learning easier and more efficient.

What you have to do

  • Υou will need to study for 15-25 hours per week
  • Υou must be capable of attending all courses, with training sessions being held 3 times/week
  • We reserve the right to exclude participants in case of repeated absence.

Leaders agree more people should learn to code

I think everyone in this country should learn how to program because it teaches you how to think. I view computer science as a liberal art, something everyone should learn to do.

Steve Jobs / Apple

Learning to write programs stretches your mind and helps you think better, creates a way of thinking about things that I think is helpful in all domains.

Bill Gates / Microsoft

In fifteen years we’ll be teaching programming just like reading and writing. We’ll be looking back and wondering why we didn’t do it sooner.

Mark Zuckerberg / Facebook

Whether you want to uncover the secrets of the universe, or you just want to pursue a career in the 21st century, basic computer programming is an essential skill to learn.

Stephen Hawking / Physicist
