CSI and HackerYou launch new initiative to level up, build tech capacity in the impact sector

Managing Director

The Centre for Social Innovation has always been a supporter of HackerYou. In fact, it’s where we got our start. Our CEO Heather Payne started both Ladies Learning Code and HackerYou out of CSI Annex.

Over the past five years we’ve perfected our model for delivering courses that get results. Our method is tri-fold: cutting-edge content, industry-leading instructors, and a hands-on, project-based approach to learning.

There’s never been a better time to learn a digital skill, and we want to teach you how. According to current projections, Canada will need over 200,000 additional skilled information & technology workers by the year 2020. Whether you’re an entrepreneur, marketer, freelancer, or simply interested in an innovative approach to education: levelling up your skill set is necessary to build tech capacity in the impact sector.

We’re excited to announce that CSI members will be eligible for an additional $500 discount on top of the public $500 discount applied when both a intro and advanced course are taken together, for a total discount of $1,000. Check out our current course offerings here!

Eligibility: Please specify in your application that you’re a CSI Member.
