Talent is Universal,
Opportunity is Not.

Plataforma Impact is a nonprofit education and employability program with the social mission of developing IT professionals from underserved communities and connecting them to hiring companies seeking qualified talent.

The course is 100% online and completely free, dedicated to those who are eager to turn their potential into prosperity. The program equips students with the technical abilities and soft skills to start a career in IT.

After completing the course (5 months), students are selected for internships to gain their first professional experience. Graduates will also have the opportunity to become a Jedi, our community of ex-students with exclusive benefits and specialized certification programs.
