Inauguration of the LionsGeek Training and Incubation Space

A new training and incubation space, called “LionsGeek”, opened Friday in Ain Sebaa, Casablanca to instill a new inclusive dynamic. It is a solidarity ecosystem for youth inclusion in technology and media, designed and developed around a project that promotes inclusion in the active lives of young people who have left school, social or professional life, notes a Yabiladi press release link.

LionsGeek aspires to offer a learning opportunity centered around acquiring skills in the areas of coding, digital communications, audiovisual crafts, and digital content production. The goal is to remove barriers by making technology and entrepreneurship accessible to everyone,” continues the same source.

“LionsGeek” is the result of a partnership between 2M, MullingikCharleswood, Radio and Television Belgium RTBF as well as the Ministry of Economic Integration, Small Business, Employment and Skills, Wallonia Region – Brussels, through the General Delegation in Wallonia – Brussels in Morocco and the Association for the Advancement of Education and Training Abroad (APEFE).

In order to foster the emergence of a fertile and promising ecosystem, LionsGeek offers diversified support adapted to everyone’s needs. It is thus centered around 3 axes of intervention: a full-time training program, an incubator for project leaders, as well as a co-working space. LionsGeek aims to train approximately 200 young people each year in the digital and audiovisual professions, supporting them to reach the professional world.

In order to allow more young people to get acquainted with the spirit of “LionsGeek”, a Hackathon was organized in Casablanca on November 11, 12 and 13. Thus, young people will have the opportunity to present their ideas before a jury of experts and will benefit from technical and human support to develop their projects.
