Young Empowered Programmers

Building Africa through Coding

Our world is fast becoming a virtual place where we can get things done from the comfort of our homes; for example, you don’t have to go to the mall to get groceries because of online malls, and you don’t have to go out looking for a cab as you can do that in just a click.

The problem though is that there is a shortage of Developers/Programmers worldwide today especially in Africa who can help create home-grown solutions to pressing needs. As a result of this shortage, many prefer to outsource their projects to foreigners. However, we have great news for you! A solution to this problem is here through the YEP! initiative.

The Young Empowered Programmers (YEP!) is an initiative to bring Coding to kids and teens in a fun and immersive manner. The concept behind YEP! is to energize, encourage and empower students, in their current state with the power to code. The power-to-create is strong within every young person and our mandate at YEP! is to teach our kids and teens to begin creating through code.

Facebook Founder, Mark Zuckerberg, shared on his timeline recently about an encounter he had with Tayo, an 11 year old Nigerian. Tayo showed Mark a game he built called “Spike Rush”, and Mark who was impressed recounted how he started out like Tayo, coding simple games as a child too and look where he is today!

Innovation is the key to unlock the great future we anticipate, and we at YEP! are equipped with the tools to impart your kids, teens, with the power to create through code. For more information and bookings, kindly reach us on 08029568267 or send an email to info@yep.com.ng or yepngr@gmail.com . There is no better time to create than now.

 

YEP!
