Our Programs

At Inno-Hive, we want to create a world where community supported opportunities to build 21st century skills are barrier-free and accessible to all. Through engaging community events, meaningful partnerships, and powerful programming, we deliver an inclusive learning experience to help foster success in the 21st century.

Why Now?

The Fourth Industrial Revolution represents a fundamental change in the way we live, work and relate to one another. It is a new chapter in human development, enabled by extraordinary technology advances commensurate with those of the first, second and third industrial revolutions. These advances are merging the physical, digital and biological worlds in ways that create both huge promise and potential peril. The speed, breadth and depth of this revolution is forcing us to rethink how countries develop, how organizations create value and even what it means to be human.

Considerations:

  • All programs will be offered at no cost to participants
  • Programs may be offered through strategic partnerships with other organizations
  • Programs may be offered by subject matter expert volunteers from technology sector

According to the World Economic Forum, 65% of today’s school children will graduate into jobs that do not yet exist. This demonstrates an urgency for young people to develop a strong technology based skillset, as well as 21st century competencies, such as collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and innovation, etc., in order to thrive in this rapidly changing workforce. It is important for youth to develop the skills needed to become lifelong learners.

Not only is upskilling and reskilling for youth critical for their survival in the workplace, but it is also relevant and important to the recovery of the current economy, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The need for upskilling and reskilling has not only been identified by World Economic Forum., but also in Canada. The Ontario Chamber of Commerce specifically outlines the need for attention on upskilling and reskilling during these unprecedented times: “the return to economic activity will require companies and employees to rapidly adjust to a new normal. Retraining and upskilling the workforce during this period will help businesses prepare for post-pandemic growth, which will demand new skills and exacerbate the skills gaps already present in Ontario’s economy.”
