Do you have school-aged kids at home and want to challenge them with a project that combines technology AND social impact? Every month, goIT – part of TCS’ Corporate Social responsibility team – develops a new opportunity each month for students to ideate digital innovations based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Students from across North America think of creative, tech-based solutions to solve different problems related to a specified SDG. The students are guided by influential organizations who are on the ground doing and supporting the given cause for the month.

For the June Monthly Challenge, TCS has partnered with Project Inclusion Network (P.I.N.) to challenge students to create a digital innovation that improves access to work opportunities for people of all abilities. P.I.N. enables communities to improve access to opportunities for Persons with Disability through empowering Persons with Disability, enabling disability inclusion, and engaging strategic sectors of society.

Here’s the steps:

  • Identify a need related to SDG #8
  • Think of a tech-based solution that could fill this need.
  • Design a prototype, either on paper or online
  • Create a 3-minute pitch video presenting your innovation
  • Submit your video through this website by the posted deadline

At the end of the monthly challenge, a panel of judges from TCS will review each pitch and showcase some of the most exciting, inventive, and hopeful new ideas on this website. We can’t wait to see these innovative solutions! Questions? Contact adam.hartley@tcs.com
