Tech Mates | Creating enrichment to support youth in rural areas

What is the problem you found?
How might we create more activities for youth to stop boredom and turning to drugs?
Customer / Problem
Without any outlet into which to direct their time and energy, youth in our community are getting bored and idle. Unfortunately, this can lead to taking risks such as turning to drugs to fill the time, and without the support of the community, this can lead to serious, lifelong addiction issues.
What Is Your Solution?
Our solution is to establish a "tech hub" in the Finley community. This tech hub would be set up in a local venue and would house a wide range of modern technologies available for youth to access while using the space. The tech hub would provide a space for youth to congregate, meet new people, and engage in interesting, enriching and entertaining activities to occupy their time.
With a positive outlet for their time and energy, the young people in our community will be able to thrive.
