AND AWS INITIATIVE
Toronto Raptors Hackathon
"This was an amazing event and it made me want to participate in more hackathons just like this. I hadn’t ever thought of tech jobs in sports before, so this event opened so many career paths for me.” — PArticipant
This inaugural event was presented by SportsX, and made possible through collaboration amongst the Raptors Front Office Inclusion team, the Digital Labs Strategy & Analytics team, MLSE Launchpad (our youth community centre), our innovation partner (AWS), and BridgeTO Youth, a community organization that worked with the Raptors to support outreach and registration of students and collaborate on the development of programming. They are a not-for-profit organization driven to help youth in under-served communities achieve success beyond high school. Bridge TO Youth provide free tutoring, mental health workshops, outreach support, mentorship, and exclusive career-related events, to help bridge the gap to success for our youth to reach their full potential.
