Digilab Tooting: A Summer Round-Up!

Digilab Tooting: A Summer Round-Up!

Giovanni Dyke with the latest news from Digilab Tooting

The team at Digilab Tooting, the exciting youth-led digital hub, have been hard at work over the summer months. Here, Digilab member Giovanni Dyke, gives us the lowdown on what the guys have been up to!

 Take it away, Giovanni.....

“During the eventful summer months, we had a range of things going on in the Digilab scene. Firstly, we have fully recovered from the tragic robbery that happened to us in May. We have been able to get ourselves back on track and carry on progressing, giving local young people a place to come and fulfil their dreams through digital skills.

“At Digilab Tooting, we’ve been going to schools and reaching out to young people to show them what Digilab is about. We have finalised the work we will be doing with Ark Academy Putney, starting in October, which will include digital marketing, film-making, Wordpress development and much much more.

“We’re also now part of the Francis Barber Pupil Referral Unit timetable, which began last week. We are teaching the kids there coding, filmmaking and design as well as interpersonal skills development, helping them to build their self-confidence.  

“In July, we had 8 work experience students visiting who worked with us for two weeks, learning digital skills. All 8 are now part of the Digilab family!

Business Launchpad also held their 30th Anniversary, celebrating 30 years of helping local people with their businesses, providing business counselling and access to funding. We participated in the celebratory party and had a stall there.

“Finally, we also did some volunteering for the local Be Enriched charity, teaching coding to the youngsters there.

“That’s the latest monthly round up for Digilab Tooting. We love working with young people and teaching them valuable digital skills, so come down and check us out! We’re based at the Trident Business Centre, 89 Bickersteth Road, Tooting, SW17 9SH. You can check out our website and also follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.”
