Who We Are
Our programmes take onboard students from underfunded band 3 and lower schools in Hong Kong. Our goal is to teach them design and technology skills. Our courses include digital marketing, tech project planning and digital design. To take part in our programmes, students need not have any previous exposure to technology, coding or design.
“If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.”
John D. Rockefeller
Why Digital Marketing and Design
Digital marketing and design success is contingent on the ability to show a balance of technical competency and alternative problem solving, creating the opportunity for equal access to the best jobs. In addition, virtual freelancing is not considered local employment and thus payment can be received through online systems, providing an opportunity for poverty alleviation.
Our courses will create opportunities for refugees, develop candidates for businesses, and create a pipeline of already-employed or ready-to-employ refugees for resettlement countries.
So Much More to Achieve
Hack Champions looks to continue its work of reaching out to children and adults of all ages who wish to appreciate and adopt the skills and efforts of coding and design led thinking.
Code a Design
We will bring competency and values led code and design education to the students of Hong Kong.
Volunteers and Collaboration
We are always looking to collaborate with more organisations and NGOs to help sign up more students to attend our courses and programmes. Please visit our “sign up” page if you want to learn more about how to collaborate and work with Hack Champions.
