Dedicated Mentoring Program

Code for GovTech (C4GT) has conducted two rounds of Dedicated Mentoring Program (DMP) since 2022 where selected students and working professionals get an opportunity to contribute to critical tech building blocks with the guidance of a dedicated mentor. They work closely with DPG builder and adopter organizations on real world problem statements that have a population-scale social impact.

As part of the initiative, DMP is an experiential learning opportunity for technology enthusiasts across the globe who are passionate about technology. Participants will solve population-scale problems, work on live open-source projects and drive impact, while being mentored closely by experienced industry practitioners.

Applications for DMP 2024 are open now!
