Join our mailing list for Learning Labs updates
Learning Labs is a new digital (and physical!) space designed to spread digital literacy across Canada.
In August of 2011, we launched Ladies Learning Code. The following January, we announced Girls Learning Code. That June, HackerYou came into existence. And earlier this year, due to overwhelming demand, we created Kids Learning Code. Suddenly, we found ourselves managing four distinctly different brands and four different web presences, but all with the same mission: spreading digital literacy across Canada.
Earlier this year, we had a thought. What if we united all of our organizations under a single brand, and invited other incredible organizations promoting digital literacy in Canada to join us? Enter Learning Labs. Learning Labs is a non-profit membership organization designed to help Canadians find the very best digital literacy learning opportunities near them. Soon, we’ll launch our new website that will feature our members’ event listings from across Canada and beautifully designed webpages for each each organization. Learning Labs members can be non-profit or for-profit, big or small - as long as you’re creating great events and programs focused on digital literacy, your organization is a fit.
In addition, we’re happy to announce that Learning Labs has a brand new home in Toronto - a wheelchair accessible 7000 square foot digital literacy hub, outfitted with two classrooms, open space, a maker space, boardrooms and more, conveniently located at Queen & Spadina in downtown Toronto. Thanks to outside an outside investor, over $200,000 will be invested in making the space into exactly what Toronto needs. The future home of hundreds of classes, workshops, meetups and hackathons, this space will support Torontonians as they skill up for the 21st century. In the future, we hope to partner with organizations in other cities to make spaces like these available to people - and Learning Labs member organizations - across Canada.
