Since 2007, W4AL has been providing job training to thousands of people through 40 plus job centers across Africa and beyond. They focus on teaching those who are unemployed how to work with excellence and start their own businesses, along with furthering their skills in areas like computer literacy, office administration, and hospitality. In 2017, W4AL partnered with Trinity Education to offer advanced and innovative training programs to their students. As the first Digital Bootcamp pilot program, they will be rolling out the Digital Bootcamp to additional learning centers in Africa during 2018, and Trinity plans to offer more skills-based bootcamp programs in collaboration with W4AL International.
