National Volunteer ICT Program

This is a six-day intense program that will teach Rover Scouts ICT and leadership skills in administering, managing and creating content driven projects that will bridge the digital divide and enlist people from marginalised communities to become computer programmers, web developers and many other functions of IT. 

Course Contents

These are a combination of Web Development, Community Development and Project Management. This will empower ICT Volunteers with the skills they need to start ICT projects in disadvantaged communities all across the country.

A combination of this and social media helps to drive sales, increase awareness of products and services and build a solid brand.

disadvantaged community areas that need IT training programs be rolled out to their communities. 

Product Development

This involves a series of stages from conceptual to final idea development. ‘Concept to launch’. This will teach participants the conceptual process of initiating services or products to the communities they will work with.
