TXDL is happy to welcome Lequanne Collins-Bacchus to our organization in the role of Youth Director. She will be responsible for creating our youth focused and led initiatives.
An “intellectual peripatetic”, she has studied at Carleton University philosophically, and Seneca College logistically. She has worked in various capacities from researching machine learning at OCAD University to assisting with the erection of a memorial bench for Third World Bookstore by Bathurst station. She has also done copy-editing for publications to participating in a Google hackathon for equality and facilitated learning in maker labs at Ryerson University and the Ontario Science Centre.
She loves re-imagining the human experience while walking around and thinking about life; take a peek at some of her projects on Github.
TXDL is a registered non-profit agency that provides youth mentorship and training development programs with the following goals in mind:
- To give diverse and underserved youth in-depth exposure to the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) academic disciplines through intensive training from tech industry professionals.
- To channel this development directly into internships and employment opportunities in the gaming and tech industries for our program graduates.
