Hack Your Future

Hackyourfuture is an initiative that teaches computer programming to refugees in Dutch refugee centers. At the moment many refugees have very few possibilities in terms of work and education during their time in a refugee center. Our aim is to teach refugees to program and to bring them in contact with our network of businesses that hire programmers. Currently we're developing our on-line educational program and we're looking for programmers who would like to help out to create a high quality course.

We are looking for people who'd like help as:
- tutors, who help our students with their programming exercises and help them with more general questions. (like what language to learn next, career questions etc.) This is mainly done on-line and takes 2-4 hours a week. (we will teach multiple programming languages)
- program developers, who organize and structure the educational set-up of the program. This mainly comes down to creating a curriculum of interesting exercises for our students after they have learned the basics of programming.

If you're interested in helping, or have any questions mail us. Also have a look at our website: http://www.hackyourfuture.net/. All help is greatly appreciated.
