Palestine Launchpad with Google, powered by Udacity

Did you know that IT and digital skills are the top skills required for Palestinian youth to pursue amazing careers?

They open doors to local, regional and international opportunities for both remote and freelancing jobs. However, there is a gap between the education available and the labour market’s required knowledge.

Tech workers rank among the top 5 highest paid professionals in the world. Trends to work remotely have also omitted geographical barriers, allowing people to fulfill roles from across the globe, or in their own hometown. This programme was launched as an initiative to support Palestinans in joining the growing tech workforce. 

Google, Udacity and SPARK are launching the Palestine Launchpad with Google, powered by Udacity programme, to equip youth with digital skills through:

  • Fully funded scholarship programmes for 6,000 learners
  • Flexible self-paced learning schedule 
  • Live virtual sessions with the best mentors in the field 
  • Career workshops to prepare you for the real world (CV, Linkedin, GitHub, interview preparation) 
  • Get support in landing a relevant job or internship 
  • Exposure to freelancing opportunities
  • Network with employers in the local and international labour market
  • Donors
