Summary

We are raising money to create a Digital Opportunities Fund to support youth clubs who are tackling digital exclusion and raising the level of digital skills in their communities. The fund will provide financial support to extend or expand digital skills activities through projects which are organised and led by young people. Microsoft YouthSpark is matching donations on #GivingTuesday to support this programme providing critical resources to young people. Because everyone starts somewhere.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Digital literacy is a real concern in the UK with many young people living in poverty not having access to personal computers at home. Widening the work of youth club will ensure that many more young people have access to digital opportunities. There are over 1 million young people in the UK currently Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET) for to many taking the first step into finding something meaningful to do with their lives is extremely challenging.

How will this project solve this problem?

We hope this project can inspire and assist youth clubs to bring positive digital experiences into the realm of youth work, and enable more young people who may not usually have access to digital opportunities and inspire them to aim and achieve more in their futures.

Potential Long Term Impact

The long term impact of the project will be to increase digital literacy and digital access among the most disadvantaged young people in our networks as well as provide some young people with meaningful pathways out of being Not in Employment, Education or Training (NEET).
