Carleton University has supported VV with a huge array of facilities right from the beginning of Virtual Ventures in 1994. In addition to all of the science and computer labs, we also receive access to classrooms, lecture theatres, board rooms, lobbies, parking facilities, a fast internet connection, and more. Participants at Virtual Ventures never have to share computers, and often have multiple computers, each one equipped with professional-grade software, something that has only been possible due to Carleton’s tremendous dedication to our program!


In partnership with Shopify, we deliver Linked>, which includes digital-skills based programs hosted weekly at BGC (formerly Boys and Girls Club) of Ottawa locations and Linked> Leaders hosted at BGC Canda locations across the country. Shopify also supports sending BGC Ottawa youth to attend Virtual Ventures summer camps.
