Academy X was piloted last year by 100 young female students and is now in its first full-run. Academy X teaches modern programming basics. The curriculum includes building applications using AI, lessons on leveraging technology in entrepreneurship, and other vital skills that equip students for the job market.

Both initiatives started last month and provide free training in modern programming languages and techniques.
