Building Future-proof Skills for Youth Employment

This project aims to investigate whether short programming courses can effectively equip disadvantaged young workers with the necessary skills for successful employment. Program participants will undergo 300 to 400 hours of training in technical skills and will receive job search assistance services. The authors will measure the impact of the program on employment, wages, programming skills, job satisfaction, and other dimensions of well-being. The research team is also particularly interested in assessing and understanding the program’s effects for women as well as measuring stereotypes about women in tech.
