girls

The single sex approach is a major condition of achieving the impact of JUMP IN TECH and the AMBASSADORS program. Given that minimal digital experience is often reflected in a limited sense of ability in girls, our single-sex approach creates an environment of trust and mutual support, free from judgement, between participants.

 

Acquiring digital culture and skills

The JUMP IN TECH program boosts self-confidence. Mastering digital tools is both an objective and a powerful means of emancipation.
The young girls fulfill their interest in the tech sector through career choices in digital disciplines and professions.

Passing on soft skills and tech know-how

The AMBASSADORS program empowers the BECOMTECH Ambassadors to play an active role among the general public in order to broaden mindsets and combat marginalizing stereotypes around the IT and digital professions. The Ambassadors become key players in the digital transformation.

Lifting obstacles

Following JUMP IN TECH, the participants gain confidence in their subsequent educational pathway and studies. These two programs raise the girls’ self-confidence and help develop their future ambitions.

An efficient network

For the Ambassadors, BECOMTECH is a multi-faceted network which is growing and easily mobilizable. By meeting the professionals and companies that are integral part of this network, the girls get their first professional opportunities.

Yasmina, 18

Ambassador for two years, senior

“Before, I wasn’t too confident about approaching others, [...] I didn't really see the point [...] of going out into the world. But BECOMTECH […] has really shown me that [...] I have things to offer to those around me and that I’m worth it.”

Elena, 17

Ambassador for two years, junior

“It was an opportunity to discover many professions I was unaware of, which highlighted the vastness of the sector.”

Abigaïl, 18

Ambassador for one year, senior

“My perception changed because of something very simple. I thought that IT was created by men for men but we discovered that it was actually created by women. And this changed my perspective.”
