In March 2017, the Nepean, Rideau & Osgoode Community Resource Centre (NROCRC) hosted a week long iDiversity150 project in the Parkwood Hills community of Ottawa, Ontario. This project supported priority youth aged 12-15, including new Canadians, refugees, and those experiencing socio-economic difficulties. These 20 youths learned to use computer coding (Scratch) and graphic design (Photoshop) programs to create multimedia to share their stories, aspirations, and cultural experiences about their community and living in Canada.
This project was made possible by a grant from the Community Fund for Canada’s 150th.
