How do we prepare 100 million futures for a world of opportunity?
Education is a cornerstone of sustainable development – it empowers and uplifts individuals, nations, and society. However, millions of people around the world are held back from achieving their full potential. Investing in education and skills is the answer. It is the foundation of opportunity and progress and creates better futures for all.
Our future innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders will need new skills to help us meet the challenges of tomorrow. Unfortunately, today, 800 million youth are not going to have even the basic skills to succeed in the workforce by 2030. Educational inequality was a global challenge well before COVID, but the pandemic has further widened the learning gap.
At Deloitte, we are committed to expanding opportunities for 100 million people by 2030 by developing job skills, improving educational outcomes, and providing opportunities for individuals from underrepresented and marginalized groups around the world. In line with this ambition, Deloitte is proud to support the Lead2030 Challenge for SDG4 for the fourth year. Working together, we can accelerate innovative youth-led solutions to achieve inclusive, equitable, and quality education for all.
Open and accessible to all, Codi is at the heart of the digital active learning ecosystem. Our Core programme was designed and is continuously improved to cultivate lifelong learners with a multiplier effect on the communities in which we operate; through active learning, gender transformative practices, and profound inclusivity.
The Codi Core programme combines a coding bootcamp and a leadership school based in Lebanon. We equip marginalised youth with the relevant knowledge, skills and tools to enter and thrive in the global Tech workforce. Our transformative education drives economic growth and social change.
Codi’s proven methodology maximises students’ success beyond digital/technical skills, enabling them to become autonomous thinkers, leaders and problem solvers who are ready and willing and able to continuously further their lifelong independent learning.
So far, Codi’s Core programme has transformed over 230 youth in Lebanon through high-quality employment in Tech in including 35% women and 22%+ refugees. Our ambition is to sustain and scale our Core operations while developing a global learning offering.
