Youth Programs

Born Digital


We actually do believe the children are our future (Thank you, Whitney). They are our future storytellers, designers, makers, technologists and artists. NOVAC’s Born Digital programming gives young people in South Louisiana the digital tools to make their voices heard, and the training they need to become next-gen creators!
