Train the Trainer Workshop

The Youth Internship Program is once again in full swing for the 2015-16 cycle! VCN continues its partnerships with nonprofit organizations across Metro Vancouver with utmost focus on community capacity building, affirming our long-standing commitment to narrowing the digital divide, supporting public access to ICT, and increasing host sites’ technical capacities. Meanwhile interns receive enriching work opportunities to build their ICT skills, mentorship at their placements, and the ability to give back to their community.

The first workshop “Train the Trainer”, facilitated by Dionne Pelan of the UBC Learning Exchange, brought together our talented pool of youth to equip them with the expertise required to work with diverse populations to teach community members how to properly use computers and navigate the internet, particularly those who are marginalized or disadvantaged.
