Konexio works to promote socio-economic integration and fight against unemployment among the most vulnerable, including refugees and others from disadvantaged backgrounds by teaching fundamental concepts of computer literacy, web development and programming. It focuses on three main programs: Digital Skills, Code Skills, and Apprenticeship. Developed in line with Digital Competence standards, the digital skills program consists of a sequence of cumulative courses covering basic computer use to internet navigation and word processing/spreadsheet proficiency. The code skills program starts with basic concepts of web development—moving from HTML and CSS to JavaScript and beyond. Through the apprenticeship program, Konexio also connects students with their first professional opportunities, boosting their confidence and getting them a foot in the door to the professional world.
