To guarantee an unforgettable experience for children and young people, Dden is designed to provide participants a uniquely creative ‘Digital den’ environment. During our week-long summer camp workshops, we purposefully create a participant friendly learning atmosphere that provides children and young people with practical hands-on activities where tangible solutions are visible within days. Current state-of-the-art digital applications are taught and used in the most user friendly, dynamic and fun filled ways.
Our mission is to create life-changing teaching experiences through specially curated skills-based training workshops designed to give our students skills for life and work. No other program has our track record, our passion, or our reputation as Irelands go-to summer camp for fun-filled and problem solving digital skills training.
Digital and Creative Skills for Young People
Dden is a social enterprise that teaches through activity-based learning approaches digital and creative skills to build and enhance the lives of young people aged between 10-12, 13-15, 16-19 and 20-24 who lack the necessary digital skills for school, study, or who are experiencing unemployment, underemployment, or wish to upskill.
The Digital Future
Since the pandemic, many young people in Ireland are unemployed or are in precarious employment. Research shows that young people supported with high quality education and skills training opportunities have an increased chance of building a prosperous life. They need to however be supported to access programmes that build digital and/or creative skills and equip them for further education and/or a job. (Rethink Ireland)
