 About Us

Uncommon.lt

We believe our differences are what make us special.

Our mission is to build an inclusive community that uplifts & empowers; a community that embraces each other’s uniqueness, and encourages each of us to design and build a future with purpose.

Uncommon.lt is a 6 month technology education program that was launched in Panevėžys in 2022 where young adults from all walks of life came together to learn, create and inspire.

Education

Technology Bootcamp

Our program is a 6 month learning experience that covers both tech skills needed in the digitally focused future and soft skills that support young adults to become confident and entrepreneurial.

Future participants are learning:

  • User Experience, User Interface and Product Design.
  • Front End Web Development and WordPress basics.
  • Social Media Marketing and Search Engine Optimization.
  • Project Management, Teamwork and Capacity Building.

When Uncommoners finish this program, they’re be able to design, build and market a website or online store. In addition to building their own portfolio, they form teams with classmates to create real solutions for a small business or NGO.

Innovation Hubs

When it comes to education, we believe that the environment you’re learning in really matters.
 


Learning from successful examples of Innovation Hubs by  Uncommon.org in Zimbabwe, we have created the very first Innovation Hub in Panevėžys.

Together with Panevėžys Open Youth Center, Panevėžys Municipality and other local supporters, we hosted the first batch of Uncommon participants in spring of 2022. 

Innovation Hubs are not only a place to focus and learn but also a safe space for building a strong and supportive community.

Uncommon Mentorship

How It Works

Throughout each learning module, participants are matched with a Mentor who supports them to draw the direction for their upcoming career in IT. 

Uncommoners visit companies and hear from guest speakers who are leaders in their fields. 

Additionally, each participant will be matched with a Youth Mentee, who, thanks to our students, will start their own technology journeys!

Education

Community

Our goal is to build a community of people who use their skills to benefit both themselves and the world.

In addition to training for the tech workforce, participants create a cascading benefit and build a website for an NGO that operates in Uncommon Hub’s region. 

Uncommon.lt is exploring new ways how to contribute to digital literacy in Lithuanian regions and create tech-savvy and curious communities. 

This responsibility prepares our participants to be great leaders and team players when they enter the workforce. 

Sustainability

Development, Done Different

In addition to donations & grants, one way we generate revenue to sustain our nonprofit is through the work we do for clients.

We are aiming to build Uncommon as a social business. When you hire Uncommon for your Design, Development or Marketing needs, 100% of the profits are used to further our educational mission.

Not only will you get a great product, your project means a free technology education for the young adults in our program.

Sustainability

Corporate Social Responsibility

More than anything, we count on the generosity of our donors and corporate sponsors to help us reach our goals and empower young adults to create a better future for themselves.

Special thanks to the companies and foundations who are supporting us in Lithuania. Ačiū!
