UK Youth

UK Youth was established in 1911 to enable young people to realise their potential through non-formal learning outside the classroom. We work with a wide range of organisations across the UK to achieve this. Whether in partnership with other charities or leading innovation in the corporate and public sector we remain true to our mission and aims. UK Youth operates nationally and works with over 750,000 young people many of whom are the most disadvantaged and hard-to-reach.

Digital Opportunities Fund

Microsoft Youth Hubs are now rolling out in 2015, this year we have allready granted over £100,000 of grants to community organisations to support the set-up and delivery of 6 Ambassador hubs and 10 New Microsoft Youth Hubs.

The Digital Opportunites Fund has not begun to grant funding for community engagement grants. During 2015, we will offer an opportunity for Microsoft Youth Hubs (youth clubs across the UK) to host informative, open-access community events led by young people. Through these events we hope youth hubs will be able to engage new members of the community and expand the reach of their Hub’s digital peer education.

To extend the digital skills and technology work of the Microsoft Youth Hubs could cover, but are not exclusive too; 

  • Informative learning sessions i.e. Hour of Code, Online safety, App design
  • Online Safety for parents or carers
  • Supporting the costs of childcare to enable a project to engage with teenage mothers.
  • Community outreach i.e. raising awareness and building bridges for new partnerships
  • To run an Inspiration / support event i.e. How digital can be used in youth social action, entrepreneurship, NCS programmes etc.

Our aim is to carry out this part of the programme in summer 2015 - grants will be up-to £300 per organisation to support community digital skills work. 

Up-to date information on the programme can be found at www.digitalyouthhubs.uk

Adding value to our Microsoft supported programme

The support that has been provided by this Global Giving project to the IT Youth Hubs has enabled us to create a short film featuring some of the young people involved in the programme. You can view the film in the link below.  It has also enabled us to ensure that young IT Youth Hub young people are able to attend our UK Youth Voice National Youth Conference 12-14 July and we really hope that this will enable the young people who have taken part in the programme to use it as a platform to engage more widely with youth issues.
