GAZA – SKYLANCER ACADEMY: APPLY FOR THE 15TH COHORT BEFORE 13 FEB 2020

The Skylancer Academy is comprised of multiple tracks for different cohorts of participants:

12-week freelancing mentorship program: This track is for young people skilled in areas such as web development, graphic design, translation, social media, mobile development, and front-end development to become successful online freelancers through intensive mentorship sessions in topics such as building a competitive online freelancing profile, social media marketing, and professional English. During the 12 weeks, participants gather for networking and experience-sharing in addition to workshops on trending topics in the field of online freelancing.

10-week technical skills training: Running parallel to the freelancing mentorship program, the 10-week technical training equips semi-skilled youth with market-driven technical skills, such as WordPress, Front-End development, and Android development. The technical topics are chosen based on research and data collected from the main freelancing platforms such as Upwork.com, Freelancer.com, and PeoplePerHour.com. The research considers which skills would be most useful to enable graduates to start online freelancing.
