Globant was part of the launch of Scholas Labs, the IT and Education Project Accelerator powered by Pope Francis. This non-profit initiative promotes inclusion through innovation, by building a global classroom oriented toward world peace.

 

Scholas Labs is open for individuals and startups from around the world who are interested in postulated projects relating to education and technology. A worldwide recognized committee of experts will evaluate each project, and, if selected, will pass through the four-month stage of “acceleration.” The acceleration will include mentoring, funding, visibility, networking, and other tools that will transform the original idea into a concrete solution.

The first project that will be accelerated is “Scholas Citizenship,” developed pro bono by Globant and Line 64. This project will create an online space where high school students can share their thoughts regarding civic and political topics. Its objective is to generate a personal approach to local issues and to allow students to find solutions within their own communities.
