Our Objectives: To invest in Tech Job Training and Employment Opportunities for bright and talented youths in underserved communities from the Caribbean and around the globe. This investment would keep these youths in the Caribbean and the skills obtained are measurable, transferable and exportable to countries all over the world.
Our Request: Is extremely simple, whatever you can do and as often as possible.
The Donation tab will allow you to donate as little as $5 US dollars.
Our Goal: Our campaign is to raise $100,000 US dollars over the next 60-days and to train 50 young persons both male and female in Games Development.
Specific Project: Currently the Caribbean Coding Academy has been contracted to develop a comprehensive American football application that provides the Quarterback with an interactive view of how to read and respond to the defensive schemes. The application will progress to having all 22 players on the field for skill training. Specifics on the developing software company is Equalizer Games INC is a US based corporation based in St. Louis created by Coach John Tomlinson who has coached at every level from Youth Football, High School, College, USFL, and the NFL, John brings real coaching expertise to improve a players chance to craft their skills https://theqbeq.com/.

Why Support Caribbean Technology Community?
The knowledge-based workforce of the future will be heavily dependent on computer coding skills. It is believed that in the very near future computer coding will be as essential a skill to have for many entry-level positions, in the same way that word processing and spreadsheet facilities are today. Around the world, developing countries are training more and more of their students in computer programming (coding), and much of that focus begins with html (for Website Development) and cell-phone apps. Even at this level, the Caribbean is being left behind in the race. By not sufficiently developing computer programming skills in its population, the Caribbean is unable to take full advantage of its potential to build a modern-day workforce and to diversify its economies.

Anticipated Benefits of the Coding
- A raised awareness and increased opportunities for more persons to consider science and engineering as career options
- Better preparation of our students for university study in the STEM disciplines
- A more appropriately trained future knowledge-based workforce – more graduates with enhanced skill sets and qualifications will obtain entry level positions in the workplace (especially at-risk youth)
- Promotion of more technology-based entrepreneurship, and more self-employment opportunities for our youth
- Eventual formation of more globally competitive ICT companies that could bring in more foreign exchange
- Scale up and spreading of coding workshops into other Caribbean countries
- Regional mobilization onto a path to catch up with the more developed countries in the ICT areas
- Ignition and nurturing of the inventiveness in our youth so that the next “Google” has a reasonable probability of coming out of the Caribbean
