July marks the official one-year anniversary of Create Caribbean’s operations in its partnership with the Dominica State College. This year has been an exciting and dynamic one. We’ve served the college, public and private sector, students and wider community through a number of initiatives and programs. Our Create and Code technology education curriculum is a gateway for young students into technology and coding, and into their future as college students in whatever field they want to pursue. We’ve completed 5 Create and Code activities, 4 digital media outreach sessions with other non-profits, 3 faculty workshops, 3 student workshops, 1 international student exchange program, recruited and maintained 10 DSC student interns (5 of whom are preparing for the workforce with new skills and networks, and we’ve begun and been commissioned for 6 academic/policy research projects. We want to thank every single person who has made this year possible – Dominica State College; Dominica National Petroleum Company; The Chronicle newspaper; DesignStudio;Nature Island Literary Festival; Ricardo’s Mechanical in NYC; Ministry of Information, Science, Telecommunications and Technology; Division of Culture; Dominica Public Library: Roseau and the Documentation Centre/National Archives; advisory board members, and every family, friend, student and parent of the Create Caribbean community who has contributed to the success of this first year. We’ve made it through some of our toughest challenges. We’re more than ready for greater success! From all of us to all of you, THANK YOU!
