a Nubank Recently launched prof educational program Which provides technology and customer service training courses for young blacks with social vulnerabilities living in São Paulo. In total, 400 job vacancies are offered to people between the ages of 17 and 25.
In addition, it is imperative to live in communities close to one of the ten educational centers implemented by the social impact company Alicerce Educação and not get a job, that is, not work under a formal contract. The project is part of Nubank’s commitment to combating structural racism in the country.
About the project
The project will last for 7 months. During this period, young people will receive lessons every day in core subjects such as Portuguese, mathematics and English. In addition, the course includes topics such as life skills and career guidance.
A portion of the students will be enrolled in the engineering program, as they will participate in a hacking workshop on Saturday to learn programming languages in action. After completing the course, students may be appointed by Nubank or partner firms.
The selection process for courses offered by Nubank will not have direct registration. In this way, candidates will be nominated by local community leaders who are part of the Alicerce Educação network.
It is worth noting that the trainers and managers of the project are black, in order to enhance the resurgence and impact of the program on the Afro-Brazilian community. After pre-selection, the candidates will have a week of immersion, during which it will be possible to get to know each other’s profile better in order to make the final selection of 400 students.
Classes will be personal, according to all safety protocols, and will be taught in 10 different centers, each of which will receive an average of 40 students from the course. Classes are scheduled to start on May 15th.
