Education Opportunities in Technology
GeekWire covers our groundbreaking internship program in El Salvador.
In 2013, we founded an international software development internship program, working with the El Salvador embassy here in Seattle, and a dynamic mobile software company located in El Salvador.
Our partner, called Korinver helped us create an internship program that sends young professionals from El Salvador to Seattle for very hands-on, rapid skill development training, with the goal of creating a pool of talented students who aspire to become top-notch software developers and leaders of the future.
The results of the program have been pretty compelling to date, creating a multiplier effect: graduates returning home are teaching others, or working with GenUI via Korinver. Some have even created their own start-ups. To learn more about the program, read GeekWire’s coverage here.
