The FemmTO Web Development & Graphic Design program is offered to all female identifying youth, ages 16-29, who are interested in learning the foundations of coding, web development, website and graphic design, and who cannot pursue post-secondary education due to financial restraints. The program does not only teach critical design-related skills, but also offer opportunities for field trips to design studios and e-commerce businesses located in Toronto to expose youth to job opportunities in the field.
