Free programming clubs for children from the Code Club Ukraine network will open in Mariupol

Students from 8 to 17 years old will be able to master IT skills with the best specialists in the region for free, because the school is taught by leading specialists of IT companies, senior students of specialized universities and professional mentors.

The opening of the Code Club in Mariupol was announced by the project leader of the all-Ukrainian network Alina Shcherbyna during the EAST COAST: IT Investment Forum:

- Human potential is one of the most important details of a region's attractiveness to investors. And giving role models and teaching business culture is more effective from childhood. This is one of the tasks of Code Club Ukraine - a network that has been operating in the country for 7 years. During this time, thousands of children have learned programming thanks to IT specialists who teach author's programs in our schools. From 2021, children in Mariupol will be able to join the study. We are sure that this will be an impetus for the development of human potential right here.

Detailed information about the start of clubs in Mariupol can be found on the website of the network. If you want to become a mentor of Code Club Ukraine - please fill out the application form.
