We are taking off where we left off in our last news update, to share with you how we have come along in this new version of the Jóvenes creaTIvos program.

May 29 - June 12: Entrepreneurship Workshop. During the three modules of the entrepreneurship workshop, each of the participants developed their own business idea from scratch. They learned different ideation techniques, landed their idea on a business model, validated their idea, and then put it into action. A path that showed them that there are different options to being an employee, and that the most important thing to achieve professional success is to work on what we are passionate about.

June 19: Visit to Groupe Renault. In this session, our new ally Groupe Renault - Fundación Colombia, led by its president Matthieu Tenenbaum, shared about the composition of the organization and the reasons why this great company supports programs such as Jóvenes creaTIvos. We applaud the participation of our boys an girls in this session, where they expressed many concerns.

June 26 - August 14: Introduction to Programming, GIT and SCRUM. Time to get down to business! On June 26, we began the third phase of the program, in which our youngsters began their training in Software Development. For three weeks, basic topics were reviewed to strengthen skills in algorithm construction. Then, they learned about GIT, the world's most widely used modern version control system. Finally, we closed this module by learning about SCRUM concepts, in an on-site training session which seeked to facilitate good practices for collaborative and team work in development projects. .

August 21: Visit Ruta N, Medellín's business and innovation center for the world. As every year, the benficiaries had the opportunity to get to know this mixed entity that seeks to promote the development of innovative technology-based businesses that increase the competitiveness of the city and the region. A purpose fully aligned with the objectives of the program and the themes with which we seek to connect the young people who participate in it.

August 28: We started  training in front-end and mobile development. This is the last phase of the training program where instructors enter more specialized topics in software development. Two groups will be learning about front-end development, where they will learn about programming languages such as Java Script and HTML, and one group will focus on mobile development, where they will learn about DART and Flutter, among other topics. This phase will run until November 20, where each participant will present their final project and then close the program in the closing sessions on November 27.

¡We´ll make sure to keep you posted on the progress until then!

Thanks to your support, we continue to transform lives.
