After rigorous and competitive selection, 21 girls joined this year’s training program cohort on January 9th, 2017
Orientation was conducted on January 5th, 2017, with both the team and students excited at what the future holds for these upcoming leaders.
With every year that goes by, we continuously seek to improve our training program based on lessons learned. This year’s curriculum review sought to identify ways that we could create synergy amongst trainers and create inter disciplinary collaboration. On Saturday, 7th January, our team of dedicated trainers spent time running through each module’s plan for the year, identifying how to track progress of the students, and developing unified methods and techniques for training.
This term, the students will spend time getting acquainted with AkiraChix mission and values, computer literacy and initial concepts around graphic design, web development, mobile application development, hardware, communication and life skills, and entrepreneurship.
We will continue to keep our community updated as the year progresses.
Our evening class began yesterday 16th January 2016. There’s still time to sign up if you’re interested.
Do stay tuned for more updates.
