The JumpStart Software Labs (now known as JumpCo Software Labs) had its beginnings in youth outreach programmes in some of Johannesburg’s disadvantaged high schools. The Labs take non-graduate youth and qualify them at software engineers over a 2 year learnership that addresses the gap between the computational logic of school leavers and competencies required by industry. The programme has been moved to a separate legal entity for governance purposes but remains integral to our vision.

"The JumpCo programme prepared me very well. After working there, I’d mastered the pain, in particular grappling with Java. When a terrific opportunity at ABSA came along, I was ready to play the ball."
