CODEanagan Bootcamp for Youth (15-25)

Hi everyone!

United Way of S0uthern Interior BC has upcoming bootcamps for youth 15-25 to learn more about programming and IT. Check out the details below and share with anyone who may be interested – it is completely free to register!

April 13th & 14th – 4.30-7.30pmCrack the Code : explore modern web programming with the very cool Nathan, and by the end you’ll understand such things as HTML, CSS, JavaScript & NodeJS !

April 20th & 21st – 4.30-7.30pmSurviving & Thriving…in a Tech Driven World : have fun exploring the fundamentals of I.T., computers, and internetworking… with the incredibly entertaining Troy. From a zero base you’ll discover network management, computer systems administration, and computer and internet security…. in amongst a bunch of other career skills needed for entry level IT jobs.

Both Bootcamps will be via Zoom and will involve plenty of hands-on activities, opportunities to get to know others while learning…. and I promise you, nothing at all that will send you to sleep!!

These are 2 seriously fun instructors & 2 great sessions PLUS free pizza dinner & cool awards for completing the workshop (last time was STEAM Gift Cards but you get to vote on what you’d like this time!). And truly ZERO previous tech genius is required. All that you’ll need is a desk top computer or laptop, a reasonable wifi connection….and you don’t even need to leave your house unless you want to! There will also be young, fun coaches already in the tech industry at both sessions too, to assist anyone who need a little one-on-one support or encouragement in a virtual breakout room anytime.

If you are anywhere in the 15-25 age group you are IN….. but in these Covid times we are being super flexible on age eligibility, so please reach out if you are outside that age range but want to participate anyway. FREE Registration for both workshops is now open at www.codeanagan.com

We are absolutely speechless by the continual support we are receiving from organizations both locally and provincially. We would like to formally thank you Food Banks BC, Dairy Farmers of BC, North Okanagan Regional District, Kamloops Okanagan Dairy Association, and the Safe Seniors Strong Communities through United Way of the Lower Mainland. You are a major reason why we have been able to continually support our community despite the hardships and obstacles prevalent from this global pandemic.

We cannot express enough the deep gratitude we feel. During these uncertain times, it is the love and support and generosity of others that help communities thrive and we have been fortunate and honored to receive an abundance of support from our local and provincial organizations.

The Cherryville Community Food Bank thanks all of you, from the very bottom of our hearts, as we are able to expand our reach within our community and surrounding areas to those who are at risk and to those who need this support more than ever. Thank you.

 

Organic Community GardenOrganic Community Garden

Our Organic Community Garden, established in 2017 and continually supported through the +Fresh Gardens & Growing Fund!

The garden is situated on a private piece of property in Cherryville, BC where the owner’s plant, oversee and manage the garden. In 2018 a second area was initiated to double the size of the garden which yielded 1545 lbs of organic produce! We were able to offer fresh, organic produce every week for the entire growing season. More than 20 families, 65 people, were influenced by the organic garden in 2018. Planters with pre-planted lettuce, strawberries and herbs were also provided to recipients of the Cherryville Food Bank. This allowed households to grow a portion of their own food, it was highly successful with lots of positive feedback from those who received them.

In 2019, our garden produced 1963 lbs of organic produce which again went right back into the hands of our community members! Cannot wait to see what happens in 2020!
