#HerDigitalVisions after school program builds girls’ capacity to be tech-savvy changemakers who use the web for their own means. The next round of the #HerDigitalVisions is starting February 9th, 2016.
Are you ready to be a digital leader? Self-identified girls between the ages 12 to 15 can join this free after school program that will involve 10-12 hands-on workshops and build the media literacy and digital skills needed to create, advocate and communicate online.
From February to mid-June, participants will learn how to make videos and memes, tap into critical thinking skills, and make space for girls online in a collaborative, open environment. Plus, participants will co-create and then co-facilitate a workshop on media literacy and digital citizenship, bringing their work to their peers and showing off new leadership skills.
The program will be held in central Vancouver every other Tuesday from 4:00-6:00pm and during one Saturday afternoon a month from 1:00-4:00pm. The locations are all transit-friendly and include The HiVE, the Hub, Vancouver Public Library Inspiration Lab, and SFU Woodwards.

Her Digital Visions supports girls in becoming digital citizens and leaders in communities—online and off. What is digital citizenship? Well, we’re going to explore what it means to be part of a community online. How do we listen and how do we get heard? How do you advocate for yourself and others? How do you create and express yourself? Let’s get creative, get critical, and find out.
The program starts February 9th, 2016, so don’t wait! For more information about the program or getting involved, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com or phone 250-539-5904.
