Digital Skills Training and Career Support for Refugees and Host Community Youth in Turkey
The project aims at improving socio-economic resilience among refugee and host community youth in Turkey through increased access to technical, leadership, and business skills training, as well as mentorship and career support.
Participants will have the opportunity to enhance their technical and soft skills, combining tech-focused and coding training with workshops on design thinking, idea generation, business model development, entrepreneurship as well as on the broader role of technology for development.
By involving ecosystem entrepreneurs and private sector actors in project activities, we will allow participants to cooperate with them and build fruitful longer-term networks. Within this framework, 2 coding bootcamps, 10 workshops, 10 community events, 1 hackathon and 2 business networking events will be organized for targeted beneficiaries.
