In December of 2021, TCS’ signature digital innovation and career readiness program, go Innovate Together (goIT), hit a true-blue milestone by directly impacting 100,000 students across 38 countries around the world.
goIT engages students from diverse backgrounds to bridge the learning curve with STEM, computer science, design thinking, and digital innovation.
The program offers an industry-developed, customizable curriculum that teaches students 21st-century skills necessary for a career in technology. Topics covered during lessons include the innovation life cycle, rapid prototyping, design thinking, and more. The program also allows students to interact with industry professionals, including TCS associates from around the world and offers a collaborative environment for learning.
During the program, students design a social impact product that would provide a solution to a specific global challenge while experiencing and applying these industry-relevant concepts and skills, preparing them for the future of work.
Our mission is to strengthen communities today by empowering the digital innovators of tomorrow.
Impact around the world
goIT helped me open my imagination for Computer Science. It was really fun to talk to people from across the world.
I’ve always thought that coding apps was about sitting in front of a computer all day and doing boring stuff like typing all day. This program showed us that there’s a lot more that goes into [app design]. You can write it all out, design it, draw it, and use creativity. There’s a lot more variety than you think. I definitely think [technology] is an option for me.
As we prepare this current generation for the 21st Century workplace, we are consistently searching for the right platform and projects to enable the development of these essential skills. The goIT program is the perfect platform to not only develop these skills but also to culminate a skill set that we so desperately need in our country.
With goIT, the young creative and imaginative minds of our students are put into a great challenge when they are given the task to develop digital innovation to help solve their community problem. This is what makes goIT an excellent program. It is not just a tech-oriented program but more importantly, it teaches our learners the value of empathy, being aware of their surroundings, and of using their fresh ideas to help their community.
