Commitment to Action

Scaling the Development of Young IT Professionals

Commitment by

Nethope, Inc.

In 2011, NetHope committed to facilitating IT vocational training, internships, and outplacement services for 1,000 students in Africa and Latin America through an expansion of the NetHope Academy over the next three years. This program will bridge the gap between unemployed, educated youth and the demand for skilled IT workers by companies, governments, and civil society in developing regions. As a strategic extension to the 'human element' addressed by NetHope Academy, NetHope and its partners will address the 'infrastructure element' by increasing the availability and awareness of cloud services in the target regions.
