FAMILY FIRST INITIATIVE
JIT offers three main services: (i) free online education (mainly data science training), (ii) financial literacy training, spiritual support, counseling & guidance through its Family First initiative; and (iii) consultancy. Our Free Online Education program is geared toward helping South Sudanese (diaspora) working adults, middle and high school students, as well as college and/or university students who need free tutoring and mentoring; and most importantly, the South Sudanese working adults who want to transition to the field of data science, either as data analysts or data scientists (depending on their individual academic backgrounds or career choices). And our Family First Initiative is geared toward helping South Sudanese diaspora families to become financially literate, and spiritual stronger and healthier in order to better compete in life. JITeam strongly believes that JIT’s free financial literacy training and coaching will help our families in making better choices when buying a home, or saving money for their kids’ education and/or putting some money aside for their own retirements. Further, JIT’s spiritual support, counseling and guidance will help these families to grow into stronger Christ-centered families where both parents prioritize the well-being of their families and their kids’ future. This amazing initiative is spearheaded by our V. President, Evangelist Gai Bol Luom, and he will be assisted by our program coordinator Angeth Deng Garang.
And in order to raise sufficient funds to support these phenomenal programs, we will be offering consulting services (in the nearest future) in the areas of data science, machine learning, accounting, finance (quantitative finance), education and environmental science – more details about consultancy will be communicated at a later date.
