Summary

What Do We Do

We work with young people to tackle inequality. We are re-imagining a world in which tech enables us to level the playing ground. We provide youth-centered coding bootcamps that equip youth with specialized skills to join the industry. Evaluations show that 85% of our youth obtain a job through our program and that the youth improve in resilience, emotional intelligence and overall professionalism. And we have only just started!!!!

The Challenge

The coding academy is moving into its third year and we are entering a new era because we have made the strategic decision to include curriculum development and implementation as an in-house function. We are seeking to establish a diverse team that embodies a creative, dynamic and disruptive approach to solving both the educational and employment challenges that youth face in South Africa. We aim to disrupt the status quo of coding education by developing a modular curriculum that is in line with industry trends and needs.

Why Work For Us

We guarantee personal grow and inspiration.

This is how our team describes the LC environment:
- Laid-back but professional and stimulating
- Unconventional
- Amazing people driven by purpose
- Client centered (youth)
- Challenging the status quo and oneself

Our Culture

The Life Choices team is a family with a mutual passion and determination to empower youth. We constantly push and encourage each other to strive for excellence in all that we do. We keep things simple, practical and fun. We are on a continues journey, to learn & develop ourselves, with an aim to come up with creative solutions to change the world.
