Montreal, May 29, 2020- The Centre Axel is pleased to announce that the "+Proud" project has won a $10,000 grant, as part of the INVEN_T's Innovative Techno-social Projects Support Program.

Based on the model of our mobile application +Fort, which offers support to young victims of bullying, this project will be carried out in collaboration with Sidekick Interactive.
