The objectives of the initiative “SCHOOL CODERS” are to familiarize the students with the Computer Programming, make them learn basic things about coding, attract the students from their school life to computer education, improve their skills related to ICT & STEM and specially computer programming, involve them into hands on activities to write the ‘code’, Motivate the students towards ICTs & Programming and to help in receiving various related resources.
SCHOOL CODERS is an initiative that aimed to bring together parents, educators, students, the private sector and policymakers towards advancing equitable and inclusive STEM education for all.
Girls In ICT & STEM
As part of Youth Hub, we started the initiative named GIRLS IN ICT. The initiative targets girls and young women from local secondary schools, colleges and Universities who are interested in ICT and STEM. We believe, if girls understand all the different functions and ways of working with ICT, they will have deeper understanding on how ICT is used in their communities, in their places of work, and in government.
We are keeping pace with the world’s ongoing activities and arranging several international celebrations; we are empowering our girls with proper knowledge, skills and training. For instance, we celebrate gorgeously the International Girls In ICT, Take Back The Tech, International Day of Women and Girls in Science and many more international events in the country.
Ensuring Quality Education
Every child deserves an education. Education can't not wait for COVID-19. Let's end the global education crisis and unleashing the potential of the next generation. Education is like the magic wand for solving every problem in the world. As many people around the world will get the light of education, the world will become a more livable place. Education is practical, future-ready, and suitable for the current era. We believe that Education can not wait and Education should be first.
A child’s gradually growing up as an enlightened soul and responsible citizen mostly depend of a qualified and committed teacher. That’s why we place great importance on teacher training programs. We make teaching more productive and meaningful by streamlining assignments, boosting collaboration, and fostering communication.
Programming is a critical skill in today’s economy, and there is a shortage of qualified developers. In this workshop, the students get a hands-on experience of programming. They know how to write a programming code. Moreover, they become motivated to learn more on programming and ICTs.
This is a programming workshop where student are taught basics of general knowledge about ICT, HTML, CSS, Phyton, PHP, C programming and C++ programming language.
Basically, This Program is to motivate Secondary school students to be a programmer and make them more interesting in ICT sector.
School Holiday Program
This is a after-school, weekend and holiday program where kids come together to learn, train and master technology.
In this Coding program, students will learn importance of Digital Technologies Education for their future. They will learn & experience coding, develop & publish their own games.
Upon completion, they can use their computers at home to code more games & programs. We transform children from consumers to become creators of technologies. All Coders (students) will receive certificates too.
Topic: HTML, CSS, Phyton, PHP, C, C++ Programming, Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Computer Programming, Robotics, Drone, Adriano, Cyber security and 3D printing etc.
Career talk is a one-day open seminar for everyone. All the speakers talk on the seminar are those who work on ICT & STEM fields. They share their experience on ICT & STEM career. All the participants ask questions to the speaker and they answer all the questions.

Community Development Program
Sanitary Napkins at the Door Steps
The Period is a natural physical process for women, which relates to their good health. But in Bangladesh, this has been neglected. Due to insufficient usage of Sanitary Napkins causes severe infections, even cancer. Most of our women feel shy or hesitant to ask their husbands, father, or brother to buy these products. Only 14% of females are using a sanitary napkin in Bangladesh and Many stay unhygienic in their period because of this.
To solve this problem Youth Hub is Working through the Trikonomiti Project. We have decided and formed a small fund and started to distribute free sanitary napkins to the underprivileged women. We already distributed 10000+ sanitary pads at different locations in Bangladesh.
