Accenture: $5,500 in support of the iSisters Career Connections Program

iSisters’ overall vision is closely aligned with that of Accenture.

TELUS: $11,500 in support of the iSisters iAT (Assistive Technology) Program

The primary goal of this iSisters project is to adapt a pre-existing assistive technology pilot program to reflect the differentiated learning needs of female students at the Youville Centre to further improve their education, employment, income, and well-being. Funding from TELUS will allow for the introduction of AT (Apps) to new students so that they become effective and independent learners, and to manage themselves in all facets of daily life.
