Moving Forward Computer Scholarship Program
With the help of our wonderful sponsors we are so proud to be able to run a scholarship program to award approximately 25 laptops refurbished and loaded with selected software and distributed to local emerging artists, 1 student from each North Bay high school moving on to post secondary studies in the arts or a related field, a number of youth under the age of 30 who are identified as deserving based on community involvement and/or financial need by community members (through private nomination process) and several youth aging out of local services who could benefit from a laptop for school or work endeavors.
Each recipient will be required to complete 2-3, 90 minute computer training sessions taught by industry experts in order to qualify to receive a laptop. Sessions will run at Nick’s Place For Us. during the first two weeks of July with the possibility of furnishing additional classes for interested participants. Laptops will be awarded at the completion of training sessions at no cost to the participants.
