Brampton Multicultural Community Centre (BMC) in partnership with McMaster University’s Faculty of Engineering is launching a one of a kind project which will bring about change, along with impacting and enhancing service delivery. This project as the name suggests is focused on “Helping Newcomer Youth Reinvent Settlement Services” through active engagement and application of design thinking to make services more accessible and effective.
The Hackathon would ideally bring forth an application; assuredly enhance understanding and network, build settlement sector knowledge and capacity around serving newcomer youth. It will employ collaborative design thinking to create new or improve existing solutions, products, tools and services that will enhance refugee and immigrant youth settlement and integration.
