Latin Code Week (LCW) is SAP’s signature program in Latin America. To date, the program has helped 6k+ students, ages 16–20, increase their digital skills acumen, as well as develop an entrepreneurial mindset and better prepare them as they enter the future workforce.
Together with Junior Achievement Americas, the program launched its 5th edition virtually in 12 countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador, Mexico, USA (Miami), Paraguay, Puerto Rico and Venezuela) with the goal of reaching more than 1,800 students. The LCW competition invites students to develop an app prototype that helps to solve a social or environmental challenge. This year the focus was on climate action. SAP customers and ecosystem partners support the entire program as dedicated volunteers.
