Our Involvement In European Union Programs
Social Hackers Academy (SHA) was created in order to make digital skills training & employment available for vulnerable groups accessible, starting from Athens, Greece. Acknowledging that there are multiple cities & countries that have been struggling with the refugee/migrant crisis and other social problems, that make the most disadvantaged groups unable to integrate into the society, we have decided to share our expertise, partnering with other organizations abroad.
We are currently a member of the MigraCode Project (KA2 Erasmus+ Program) that aims at expanding our educational model in web development to Barcelona Spain.
Through Capacity Building Activities & Trainings, SHA transferred the knowledge & expertise that has been acquired, in order to train more beneficiaries, making the impact sustainable. In the meantime, we have gained experience, through KA1/KA2/KA3/Horizon/AMIF/ESC Programs, that we have applied as leaders or partners of a consortium.
In all potential collaborations, we can contribute with:
Designing & delivering IT Educational Curricula, with the skills taught to be needed from companies.
Enhancing students’ employability, through soft skills training and career counseling sessions.
Establishing relationships with tech companies, to ease the networking between graduates & companies, through meetups & career days.
Doing capacity building activities to expand our educational model in other cities.
Create applications, websites & platforms under a social context, as the developers behind them are our beneficiary students.
Refugees migrants’ education and integration of good-case practices.
A network of professionals and mentors that guide our students.
Connecting our students with role models from the tech industry.
Doing career days for our graduates to increase their employment opportunities.
Building Websites & Web Applications that will be delivered from our students.
