We were possibly going to apply for it - where is this at?
UPDATE: checked in with Jess and it sounds like we decided that the IDRC isn’t really a fit for this because we are not a youth-focused organisation (and we don’t have the infrastructure related to youth and employment) - Jess had discussed with Michael at TIG - that we would support them applying for it, but it sounds like they can’t since they’ve already got other funding from this source. Jess and Vera had also discussed applying in relation to the Big Ideas project - not sure where this is at since Vera has been away and won’t be back until tomorrow.
Looking for an inclusion metric
2 components - mini-grants that we give away, and broad Canadian consortium (10 partners across Canada)
Goal to reach 50% or more to reach those who wouldn’t normally access it - would be more likely if all partners could be more inclusive from tech and programmatic perspective - useful for them as well as for more inclusive Canada - rather than TIG trying to meet the 50% on their own
Looking at AODA training - websites produced as part of this project
Train the trainers - back to national partners - as they are building their sites and programs
