Jelly Academy is pleased to announce that 40+ Indigenous digital marketing graduates will be entering the marketing industry this month. Jelly Academy is working towards supporting growth within digital marketing among Indigenous peoples and businesses by way of education. Within their most recent fall semester, 45 seats were donated as scholarships to Indigenous students and staff members from organizations such as CCAB and FNTC

Jelly Academy is one of Canada’s top digital marketing bootcamps that provides in-depth training in the foundational skills of digital marketing which include SEO, social media, PR, Google Analytics, Google Ads and Facebook & Instagram advertising. On top of the course certificate, Jelly Academy propels students to complete industry recognized certifications that today’s employers are looking for from corporations such as Facebook, Google and Hootsuite. As education is one of the most common barriers when it comes to opportunities for Indigenous students, Jelly Academy wanted to ensure they were creating a more accessible industry. 

Jelly Academy founder, Darian Kovacs, shares the importance of these scholarships, “as an educator and leader with Indigenous roots myself, it's always been of great importance for us to give back and support others to assist with jobs, opening doors and the growth of other Indigenous businesses.” With more job opportunities on the market, it is important Indigneous professionals and businesses have an advantage in the application process. SearchKings co-founder and president, Darryl Margaux shares they’re "aiming to hire 23 people these next few months - and hiring more within the next year. This is exactly what the industry needs - more digital marketing skilled workers."

As digital marketing and digital focused jobs are of this year’s most popular careers, Jelly Academy wanted to ensure they were doing their part to create a diverse and inclusive industry. Within a field such as marketing, it is about the power of voices and stories, which means all voices should be heard and have space. Through these scholarships, the goal is to ensure more Indigenous voices are being heard within the industry.

In addition to the scholarships, Jelly Academy has partnered with Best Buy to provide necessary hardware and electronics to Indigenous students to ensure there are no barriers to learning within the course. Not only will this year’s graduates leave the course with credible certifications, they’ll have the tools to help succeed on the job.
