- wishes to or has already planned to offer an activity (during the month of February and/or March break) that will help develop the digital skills of young people.
Presenting a digital resource allows you to showcase your organization while offering youth, youth workers and teachers the opportunity to learn and develop their digital skills:
- Informative documentary series, podcasts, and videos;
- Immersive worlds and applications ;
- Platforms and websites on the fields of study and future careers;
- Resources to develop creativity and/or technical skills;
- Resources for teachers and/or youth workers.
They can be either free or chargeable. If there is a fee for the activity, it must be mentioned in the participation form, along with the exact amount.
There is no financial support offered for the deployment of activities. The purpose of the call for participation is to register activities that will be highlighted during the Digital Youth Month in the programming platform. The platform is meant to raise awareness of digital issues among young people and to provide a window for our collaborators to present their resources and activities that will take place from February 1 to March 6, 2022.
