The main focus is on skills development and fostering entrepreneurship and innovation that will make them be active leaders of the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry.

School learners may be registered for the holiday VacWork programme.

Geekulcha was primary created for university students and still has a key focus on them hence the organization leverages on academic partnerships to create and enable more opportuinities for students.

Students at universities can take part of these programmes:

Student Leadership on campus (GKSS)
Hackathons and Mapathons
Student VacWork Programme

In most cases, Geekulcha crew would be busy with other projects and as such, we owuld refer you to a developer in the community.
