The program consists of a series of workshops where students are taught techniques for creating a web page. The programs take place in a school’s computer lab or at a CAP site. Young people receive instruction from qualified technical coaches who, together with facilitators, will run the workshops.
Host schools will be responsible for scheduling sessions for this program. Students at all levels of education are able to take part – elementary students are invited to take part as participants, high school students as technical coaches, and post secondary students as program facilitators.
