Part 5: Project approach/solution

In its approach to program design, NetHope conducted an extensive landscape analysis, interviewing experts in the local focus countries, representing academic institutions, employers, tech sector leaders, students, NetHope’s own tech sector partners, Accenture Development Partnerships, and NetHope members.

The specific approach was selected for the following attributes:

  • Delivers 21st century training and IT skills that are market-relevant, practical, and transferable; · Provides internships and mentoring support for college-age youth to effectively transition from school to work, and succeed in the workplace;
  • Strengthens IT capacity of in-country INGOs and their field offices; and
  • Bolsters the local workforce of skilled/certified IT professionals in developing regions.

Working in partnership with local organizations and educational institutions, the NetHope Academy Internship Program connects young, computer-literate, near and recent University or technical college graduates with opportunities to gain professional job skills and experience through internships at local NGOs and corporations. In addition to technical and soft skills training, interns receive daily mentoring, ongoing evaluation, job placement assistance, and outplacement support.
