Digital Badges

CCYWI has begun to offer digital badges upon completion of certain trainings, starting with Youth Work Practices. "A digital badge is a validated indicator of accomplishment, skill, quality or interest that can be earned in many learning environments. The world is changing fast and, today more than ever, traditional modes of assessment fail to capture the learning that happens everywhere and at every age. Digital badges inspire new pathways to learning and connect learners to opportunities, resources, and one another." (Humanities, Arts, Science and Technology Alliance and Collaboratory)

Once you earn a digital badge, you can feature it on your personal networking sites, opening doors to more career, education and lifelong learning opportunities.
