Project

Project History

The Project started in December 2018 with the pilot project Code for All Sintra, in the area of programming, and the goal was to bring young people, NEETs, from Sintra closer to the digital universe and the job market.

In Portugal there is a great demand for qualified human resources in the programming area and recently the opportunity to enter the programming market has been emerging through the participation and completion of coding bootcamps.

During the pilot project, 20 young people from age 18 to 29, were received to improve their English, soft skills and to participate in coding bootcamps, both at the initiation and the intensive level. The program ensured a thorough professional preparation and 80% of the young people entered the labor market successfully.

In 2021 we will continue the project by starting Bytes4Future for all young people, also NEETs, who want to UPskill in the technological area!
