Application for the class of 2019 is now open!!

AkiraChix is a center for excellence and believes that access to education and training is of paramount importance for young women to support them in moving out of the vicious cycle of low-skills, low-productivity, and low-wage employment and as a pathway to bridging the gender gap in Information & Technology industry.

codeHive is one year fully funded hands-on technical training program by AkiraChix that provides an education and economic opportunity to young women between the age of 19-24 from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. These young women are those that have completed high school but due to financial constraints are unable to further their education. The program aims to develop capacity and skills in computer literacy, software development (for both mobile and web applications), hardware & product design, graphic design, entrepreneurship, life skills, communication skills, and professional development.
