CODE FOR GOOD!
Chatterbox is an online language school where coaches are refugees, with valuable professional backgrounds.
We match our students and coaches based on their interest and professional backgrounds. For example, we will pair an aid worker with a Syrian Human Rights lawyer to learn Arabic. This unique relevance in language learning yields great motivation for students, and we pride ourselves with one of the highest course completion rates in language learning. This also yields skills validation beyond language teaching for the refugee coaches, drastically improving their confidence and employability on the job market.
But, as much as we’d like to, we can’t do that manual matching forever!
So we're hosting a hackathon to build a matching algorithm between students & coaches – and we're looking for great engineering minds with a genuine desire to create impact, to come help our small-but-mighty social enterprise.
🎁 Best idea will get a full Arabic or Spanish beginner course with a private tutor (€350) 🎁
