The Junior Innovators program is a 12-month program that provides technical workshops, that aim to develop coding and robotics skills, that empower under-resourced learners in grade 8 and 9, solve community problems using technology. The program takes a wide lens approach to computer science by covering topics such as problem solving, programming, physical computing, user-centred design, and data, while inspiring students as they build their own websites, apps, games, and physical computing devices.
Building on our foundation of successful digital training programs
with the Junior Pioneers program, Social Coding is moving
towards a landscape that is slightly more ambitious; Helping rural
industries such as Agriculture and Small businesses grow by
equipping them with digital tools.
The Volunteers development program a collaborative program between SC & Corporate Partners in grooming and developing black talent. SC has a pool of talented volunteers from universities, who are pursuing a degree in ICT and are from disadvantaged communities. This development program is a holistic approach to training and development – we focus not just on technical skills, but we incorporate soft-skills as well as other skills in equipping our volunteers, ensuring that once they graduate, we can provide a direct talent pipeline to our corporate partners.
Social Coding has an excellent track record of documented impact.
This track record enables us to meaningfully assess current practices and measurement trends in Corporate giving and philanthropy, clarify precisely what is needed in terms of impact evidence, and then identify the most promising and practical steps forward to help a partner achieve maximum impact that yields tangible social rewards.
