Join IT: career guidance meetings

Join IT: career guidance meetings

Educational committee's initiative

Project description

Within the Join_IT Project Group - educational initiatives for promoting the IT-industry among children and teenagers - the Association organizes a series of meetings of professionals with high-school students all around the country.

To create an exciting and motivating educational process, the IT Ukraine Association attracts the best lecturers and the most proactive teachers, who support the idea of the free knowledge distribution among the people. We are assisted by the Ministry of Education and Science, state educational institutions and international IT-companies, whose experts are pleased to introduce children with all the details of programmer's work.

Career Guidance Meetings are split into two parts - spring and autumn waves.

Problems

Ukrainian digital industry is developing extremely fast, so there is a shortage of programmers in IT-companies. Among high school graduates there are many of those, who have the skills to technical sciences, so their attention should be drawn to IT.

Goal:

To tell the young people from the first hand about the benefits of working in the IT-industry so as many children as possible join the IT-community and tie their future with the newest technologies.
