Today in Bosnia-Herzegovina (BiH) and throughout the EU economy, there is limitless potential for employment in the IT sector. Every day, IT companies in BiH are posting advertisements asking for programmers. The European Commission (EC) has warned that the EU economy is facing a shortage of 900,000 programmers between now and 2020. Meanwhile, unfortunately, BiH universities are not teaching the specific skills needed by the IT sector.
We have both peer-to-peer classes where young people help each other acquire skills and instruction from professors and professionals.
In partnership with the municipalities of Doboj, Tešanj, Gračanica, Stanari, and Usora, we offer intensive weekly classes through which an exceptionally well motivated and dedicated person can go from being a complete beginner to their first job at an IT company in 6 to 14 months.
Each summer, we offer a range of IT workshops at our summer institutes which take place in Tuzla and Doboj. Through our summer institutes, hundreds of youth have taken the first step towards joining BiH's vibrant IT sector.
In this way, we further our mission of encouraging people from all parts of BiH to create common ground and a shared future through education and entrepreneurship.
