Standard Bank, in partnership with African Teen Geeks, started on a journey with an initiative known as Girl Geek in August 2016. The initiative was launched around National Women’s Day as a long-term investment into the support and growth of young females from the public schooling system into the world of Computer Science/ IT.
The 1-year learnership program has come to a successful end for the previous group. The next intake of 33 young females partaking in the learnership program with Standard Bank will commence on August 8th 2017. But the journey for the first group does not end here.
