CodeYourFuture (CYF) is a groundbreaking coding school aimed at training refugees and other disadvantaged individuals to become highly skilled and marketable web developers. Fuelled by a passionate belief in the power of digital technology, their expertise are helping people change their lives by learning to code.
CYF equips people with the tools needed to thrive in the tech industry, building lasting, profitable careers. Expert volunteer developers train students in full stack web development with a strong emphasis on collaboration. Graduates of the programme have gone on to work at places such as the Financial Times, BBC, STV, and Ticketmaster, as well as exciting start-ups like Adzuna, Sensible Object, and WeGotPop. To help them in their mission, CYF partner with experts and organisations from around the tech industry. And Sweepr is proud to be one of those partners as we provide funding, skills, and marketing assistance to bolster their profile.

We are delighted to support this project and use our expertise to help people build a better future.

It takes cash to train students for free. We’ve donated funds to help them provide this vital service.
Volunteers from Sweepr and our wider network can use their expertise to help. We’re educating our team about the fantastic work CYF does and encouraging them to donate their time, passion, and skills to help.
Spreading the word
We’ve drawn up a comprehensive marketing campaign to drive awareness about the initiative. The more people know about it, the bigger it will get and the more people will benefit.
