Futureproof Educators

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

UiPath Foundation, in partnership with OvidiuRO Association, is launching the first edition of the Futureproof Teachers. This project is a component of the Early Education Forward Program and aims to reach preschool teachers working in vulnerable communities.

15-20 participants who represent a model of active involvement in educational and civic projects within their community will be selected to participate.

The project will take approximately 50 hours to complete, spread over 6 months, from September 2023 to March 2024, and will be conducted in a hybrid format and divided into three modules.
