The Young Africa Centre (YAC) is hosting our first ever YACATHON

The event is a hackathon aimed at teaching young people (14-25) problem solving skills using technology.

This free event will provide a taster in what it means to be in the tech industry in the sphere of enterprise

Its widely known that British people of African descent are significantly underrepresented in the tech industry, part of the reason is a lack of knowledge and lack of exposure, hence we are providing this event to help bridge that gap. The participants of this YACathon are in for a 3-day sprint in enterprise, technology and product building. Expect and interesting, engaging 3 days where valuable skills will be acquired

All levels and abilities welcome
