See what led up to this partnership with CCOL:
This summer, Digital Youth Network collaborated with the City of Chicago Mayor's Office, the Mozilla Foundation, the Hive Learning Network, and many of Chicago's cultural and education museums, institutions, and organizations for the Chicago Summer of Learning (CSOL) initiative, now the Chicago City of Learning (CCOL). Digital Youth Network's involvement in CSOL included professional development for badges and badge creation, a CSOL iRemix Learning platform that introduced badge pathways and higher level challenges for youth to take on, STEAM Studio and Brave New Voices, role-based, intern-style
pathways where youth worked with professional clients in fashion and documentary, and Digital Divas, a coding and interactive media design program for middle school girls.
