What we do



The Recode Program fosters personal and professional development opportunities for young people between 14 to 29 years of age who have stopped studying and who do not have a formal occupation. We act in partnership with NGOs, community centers, libraries and schools throughout the country, training multipliers (social educators, librarians and teachers) to bring to this particular public free courses that use technology to develop 21st century skills in these young people’s autonomy in Information Technology and Communications and solutions to social problems.


How it works


Young people register at the institution: via community centers, libraries, schools.


They attend the course at the RECODE platform.


They receive a certificate and therefore already have access to: networking within the work market, assistance in returning to studies, a chance to take part in award programs.
