"Equipped with trained mentors, 20-30 computers, and hands-on materials, CCOL's Destination: Chicago Van allows young people to engage in coding, game design, fashion and graphic design, music and video production, and much more, right where they are," according to a CCOL statement. "It also helps them discover new interests and then find related programs among the thousands that are offered on site through CCOL partners citywide. "

"CCOL is a citywide, year-round effort to turn Chicago into a city-wide campus by making more visible to youth and families the city's endless opportunities to learn new skills, discover passions and build pathways to further education and careers. Digital badges offered through CCOL recognize learning across programs in the initiative – whether at a park, museum, library, community-based organization, or online – giving learners a digital portfolio that communicates the skills they have developed."
