youCodia School – Software Development Career Training Program

Become a Professional in the Software Industry! Change Your Life for The Better!

Project-C’s youCodia School is a 4-month professional development program for motivated learners seeking a career in the software industry. Through a unique combination of curated seminars, freelance work, career mentorship, and life coaching, our goal is not only to provide our students with technical training and encourage them to think creatively, but also to enhance their employability through real work experience and equip them with the skills needed for a successful and lasting career. Additionally, we offer qualifying students the opportunity to “earn their education” and receive monetary compensation in return for their contributions.
