CodeImpact believes in the power of technology and what it can do to change lives and impact communities. In Africa where youth unemployment is high, technology is part of the answer to change the status quo. We believe that introducing technology early to our children will put them in a better place to compete favorably with their counterparts all over the world.
We specialise in technical curriculum development and bootcamp process management. We have gained immense experience working with our learners in our regular boot camp programs.
In a world where technology has demystified geographical barriers, jobs are no longer defined by location but by the availability of talent. As Africans, we need to build a critical mass of technology leaders and practitioners so that our generations to come can be global players in the technology space.
CodeImpact was born out of the desire to raise our stake as Africans in the technology space globally and therefore equipping our children with the skills they need is imperative for our sustainable growth.
We could have picked any other space to focus on but we chose coding as a literacy skill for teenagers.
Like Steve Jobs said Coding or computer programming teaches you how to think. Most of our education system does not teach us how to think but instead focuses on cramming facts and reproducing them to pass a test. We think differently at CodeImpact. We encourage our learners to think and tinker and endeavor to create a space where people are free to fail and learn from their mistakes. We do not castigate failure but rather encourage it because it is the only sure way to mastery.
We run weekend coding programs for teens and pre-teens who feel confident and are eager to learn and grow. Our program runs for a period of 10 weeks and in those weeks our learners are facilitated to learn and collaborate on projects. Our facilitators are available throughout the week to offer support in-case some learners need clarity on topics or are experiencing challenges on their weekly projects.
Ultimately our main goal is to build a community of over one million technology practitioners and leaders that will continue to learn from each other, build projects together, start companies together and recommend opportunities to each other.
All learners that go through this 10-week program will immediately be eligible to join this community and we shall have a strong support system to keep the community active, vibrant, and relevant in the global technology space.
