Youth Internships

If your child is a returning participant and has turned 14, they may be invited to participate in our youth intern program induction in July. 
Email [email protected] for more information. This is a fantastic opportunity for returning participants to experience a pathway toward a career in the digitech space. Former participants have attended events at Amazon, Accenture & IBM. 


Our Philosophy

We pride ourselves on our ability to cater to students who are racing ahead, while supporting those who need more time to practise their skills. We aim to help students better understand the technological tools they have at their disposal, and how they can create rather than simply consume. Students are encouraged to adopt an experimental mindset, and think ‘What if?’  We believe that people with unique interests learn to code for different reasons, and there are many ways to engage kids with technology in a way they find exciting and encouraging.


Absolutely none!
