MAKING A GLOBAL IMPACT
With Our Education Initiative & Programs
EPAM E-KIDS AND SCRATCH PARTNER FOR GOOD
“We really appreciate how EPAM has mobilized people in support of Scratch. We really need partners like EPAM in order to fulfill our shared vision for providing creative-learning opportunities for children around the world.”
LEGO Papert Professor of Learning Research, Director of the Okawa Center, and Director of the Lifelong Kindergarten group at the MIT Media Lab
Key Education Partnerships Programs
Our education partnerships form long-lasting positive relationships with students and the communities where they live and learn.
Our work with the Scratch Foundation has not only been instrumental in the creation of our EPAM E-Kids program – it’s also given EPAM the honor of being a champion for the foundation’s mission to ensure that Scratch is free for kids to express their ideas through coding.
We partnered with Science Buddies, an organization that supports science educators and students in providing accessible, sustainable lesson planning and science curriculum. We were challenged to devise a lesson plan where students could learn engineering basics with readily available classroom resources, which are vital for classes and schools that may be under-resourced.
Apps for Good
Our support of Apps for Good inspires students to build mobile apps and IoT products that solve problems in their daily lives. Apps for Good provides free courses to help students in the UK prepare to thrive in a future tech-driven workforce. EPAMers join students in their classes to offer mentorship and real-world experience in building and marketing technology solutions.
Hopeworks provides a safe, healing space for underprivileged youth to grow technology skills. Their nonprofit development center helps students build strong future careers and break the cycle of poverty and violence in Camden, New Jersey, USA. Through the trauma-informed training that Hopeworks provides to EPAM volunteers, we help their students overcome difficulties in realizing their potential.
OUR GLOBAL IMPACT
We impact a diverse population of students through our global education initiatives. Our programs reach socioeconomic-, neurologic- and age-diverse students to provide education opportunities for all, and our partnerships with community leaders help us develop a greater understanding of how to provide value to children and adolescents inspired by technology.
