The Tech Career Scholarship
YSYS's latest (pilot) programme #TheTechCareer Scholarship is in partnership with The Mayor of London, Jolt and The Workforce Integration Network, for young black men between the ages of 18–24 years old looking to start a career in tech.
Our new scholarship is a six-week programme, where we will work with 10 candidates to help them start a new career in tech and startups. The programme will include:
- A personalised career development plan
