Crescent Town and the larger Massey-Taylor Region, is designated as an at-risk neighbourhood by the City of Toronto. The youth in this neighbourhood require more programs to be facilitated by local community organizations for after school activities.
This grant fund was used for the implementation of technology education for the youth aged 8-19. Spanning over six workshops, the lessons consisted of using online platforms from Google, to giving effective presentations using PowerPoint.
Eighty-eight youths benefited by taking part in the program. At the end of each workshop, feedback received from the students was overwhelmingly positive. This project served as a valuable resource to the youth in the community by providing them with an active and engaging after-school resource.
*Remainder of the funds is to be used by the grantee for future projects and/or endeavors so as desired by the grantee.
