This annual event is an opportunity to discover Quebec's digital literacy initiatives and to learn about the fields of the future. Institutions, schools, organizations and businesses are invited to join this collective movement and become collaborators.

Digital literacy initiatives are growing for youth... and they need it!

"We think young people are used to technology and we give them a lot of credit in that sense. Yes, they are mostly able to use certain applications. For the rest, they need support. They also need to be shown that technology is not just a hobby, it can also become a career," says Jonathan Le Prof, a social studies teacher and spokesperson for the first edition of Youth Digital Month.
