NetHope Academy Internship Program HaitiClass Picture 2011

The NetHope Academy Haiti – a six-month program that provides Haitian computer science students with both classroom and on-the-job IT skills training – is the first known program of its kind in the Haitian capital city.  In 2010 NetHope Academy successfully launched its intern program in Haiti -six months after the devastating earthquake decimated most of the island’s infrastructure.

Over 80% of students graduating from the program were in full-time IT positions by July, 2011. Read more…
