More outreach strategy

Facebook Groups

  • Research relevant Facebook groups. A lot of disadvantaged people join communities on Facebook for their geographical location i.e. Iraqi Refugees in London etc. These are great sources of applicants.

  • Work with your local organisers to get access to the list of previously used Facebook Groups for your region / country.

Word of mouth

  • Use the CYF Slack channels! Post in your city and general channels when the drop ins are due to start. Of the last 110 people who completed step 1 in London - 50% came from word of mouth!


  • Make sure the events calendar on CodeYourFuture has the next workshop dates. Create an Eventbrite event and invite applicants to these coding workshops.
