It is true that when young people are educated, skilled and able pursue their goals; society and economies benefit. SubC believes that everyone, regardless of gender, race or location, should be free to achieve their self-defined purpose. Every year we donate through Canadian registered charities to help young women get education in under-developed nations.
“Diversity in the world is a basic characteristic of human society, and also the key condition for a lively and dynamic world as we see today.”

As a small way to support this initiative locally we have sponsored two young women who compete at the Eastbound Speedway in Avondale. They have recently placed 2nd and 4th place at the first NASCAR Whelen All American Series; congratulations Olivia and Sara Thorne. Check out CBC’s coverage here.
Organized by the College of the North Atlantic and NATI, this annual, day long conference brings together almost 400 Grade 9 students and exposes them to a wide range of technology careers in the hopes of providing inspiration for their academic plans. Students are also given a chance to meet leaders and mentors working within the provincial technology sector.
Chosen for their charisma and engaging personalities, YIT speakers aim to engage with young people on their own level. They embody the excitement a career in technology can bring. As well, by bringing together participants from different schools and gathering them at a college campus, YIT offers students the opportunity to view themselves in a new context. http://www.innovationweek.ca/schedule/
