Youth Digital Jobs Program

We aim to upskill young Sudanese men and women with modern digital, Agile and customer centricity skills and enroll them in local and remote jobs that provide a decent living. Our program is part of the Africa NextGen initiative.

Our Goals

1- Digital Skill Development: Each bootcamp will upskill 50 – 80 young men and women on modern Customer Experience, Digital Skills, Agile Teamwork and Interpersonal Soft Skills through a 10 week bootcamp taught by high caliber professionals

2- Youth Job Creation: Gain commitment from target ministries and private sector for opening up internships and jobs for them immediately post the bootcamp with decent salaries

3-  Scalability: Design the program so it can be scaled to 100-200 participants each quarter. Ensure jobs are sustainable.

4- Sustainability: Engage international and local sponsors to support the program, attend Demo Day and encourage the investment in Digital Skills.

Bootcamp Design

We are targeting to launch the first cohort of 50 participants in December 2021 on these 4 modules.
Each bootcamp consists of 2 weeks pre-bootcamp prep, 2 weeks for each module, 2 weeks project demo (~10 weeks total). We offer a separate Ministry Leadership Program
