Our mentees build technical projects of their choice by applying their
newly-acquired technical skills gained during our program
Technical Skills Expressed in a Passion Project
Our 1:1 Technical Mentorship program equips our mentees with valuable technical and soft skills during the cohort. As part of their graduation each mentee develops and builds a passion project of their choice that incorporates their newly learned skills. This gives our mentees real life experience with their skills as well as a project for their portfolio they can use for further career building.
We have seen incredible passion projects over the years including websites, online games, UI/UX design, apps and much more. It is always a privilege to witness all the innovative and creative ideas our mentees are able to realize in a short time frame. We are excited to see everything there is yet to come from them on their continued professional development journey.
