Impact Report on Upaya Social Ventures
Through a rigorous selection process, we identify applicants who demonstrate need and potential. Selected applicants go through a 6-month bootcamp to learn front-end development and UX design, after which they are placed in jobs with tech companies.
$4,000 increases the income of a Latin American woman from an underserved background by $12,000.
Laboratoria collected data on outcomes of participants before and after the program. To estimate the change attributable to the program, Laboratoria made an educated guess as to how participants would have fared without the program.
Baseline data comes from online applications for the bootcamp. This information is then compared with post-program analysis. Laboratoria conducts quarterly surveys to collect data from participants including income, career satisfaction and abilities.
Laboratoria attributes most of the change in participants' income to its program because it targets young women from underserved backgrounds and only requires them to pay for their bootcamp training after graduating and securing a job in tech.
This report was created by Laboratoria with self-reported data using ImpactMatters' impact reporting platform. This report covers January 2017 to August 2017.
