Stories of our community involvement
This just in from United Way Central & South Okanagan/Similkameen: United Way launches program to inspire tech careers for local youth.

The United Way along with several program partners (including Accelerate Okanagan, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs, and Okanagan College) are bringing together Okanagan tech companies for some friendly competition and an amazing cause.

Kicking off in March, the Super Mega Ultimate Techathlon is a fun-filled fundraising campaign involving eight simple but ‘ridiculous challenges’ from retro video gaming, to a stock photo contest, and rock paper scissors tournament. While there are prizes and bragging rights on the line, the ultimate goal is to raise funds for disadvantaged youth skill building in our community. All of the proceeds from the Techathlon go to <CODE>anagan, a non-profit program that helps local youth build their tech skills. Read the release:
