DigitalPomegranate, a technology company based in New York with an office in Armenia, held a workshop program for COAF kids in our villages. Staff from the company designed a multiple-week program to aid kids in learning a wide range of media and website building skills. The classes took place three times per week and were small in size, so students are able to get the most out of the program. The program concluded on July 21st after four weeks of instruction.
The class of nine students learned a wide range of media skills. The first two weeks of the program focused on design utilizing Photoshop. The program then moved on to building websites with WordPress.
Students who completed the program were awarded a certificate of completion indicating their proficiency in using WordPress, Photoshop and Visual Composer. Completion of the program is intended to catalyze entry into careers in similar fields.
