Continuing on the success of our 2016 programs we have begun our 2017 TXDL campaign with two training workshops right off the bat.
TXDL Starting Lineup:
Level Up with Eva’s Phoenix and TWG
For Level Up, we are in partnership with Eva’s Phoenix and The Working Group. The workshops are providing under served youth with skills training in game development and HTML coding. Our target goal is to place our graduates into internships or entry-level jobs in the tech sector. We are well into that series and the response has been great.
Level Up with Monsignor Percy Johnson
Yesterday was the first day for our nine week game development workshop at Monsignor Percy Johnson Catholic Secondary School in York Region. With the York Region District School Board as our partner we are offering a weekly immersive after school workshop for YRDSB students. We will give our program grads exposure to the nuts and bolts of game design. As a result they will come away from the workshop with a completed and shareable game project.
There’s lots more to come
This will be a busy year for TXDL. We are leveraging our exposure to form strategic partnerships with like minded organizations that will help us to meet our mission statement. We have some more exciting programs, initiatives and events planned this year. As we get closer to their launch dates we will announce those as well.
