Launched in 2015 by 1NCO & financed by the JPMorgan Chase Foundation, Start&Code turns young people into coders with lightning speed. Its decision to focus on Android programming & Java highlights an emphasis on employability. The goal-oriented program seeks to prepare participants for the modern job market with relevant skills, integration training & placement.
Become a coder in six weeks
Of the first group of 90 trainees to complete the intensive, six-week program, 15 percent were refugees. Attendees were mainly selected by ADEM, Luxembourg’s national employment agency. Start&Code cares about results, so support extends beyond coding into the application & onboarding phase. This program turns the technology boom into an immediate opportunity for any motivated individual. Start&Code improves both the employability of young people who have had difficulty finding jobs & the integration of refugees in the Grand Duchy.
