Young Bangla collaborates with the government’s ICT Division to set up countrywide computer and language training labs called Sheikh Russell Digital Labs (SRDLs) to develop Information Technology (IT) and foreign language skills among school students. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was signed between the ICT Division and Young Bangla on October 2, 2016, for arranging training sessions for more than 2001 digital labs set up in schools and colleges across the country.
Young Bangla is providing support by identifying and entrusting suitable volunteers for the roles of coordinators and general members from across Bangladesh to monitor and maintain the overall activities of these labs until 2018. The target is to eventually place at least 224,100 IT-skilled volunteers of Young Bangla all over Bangladesh by July 2018. The Young Bangla members, in turn, are expected to be proficient in IT as well as in foreign languages, leading to a better equipped freelancing and outsourcing workforce in the country.
