John's pledge

Who are you going to help: 
A local organisation, business or charity
Can you tell us a little more about this person: 
Careers Advisor at Local secondary School
Tell us more: 
There are several big companies already offering digital work experience for young people. These companies are still actively looking opportunities to connect with Young People. I have been working with this careers advisor for some time sharing ideas face2face to help her grow her ideas.
Their need: 
To secure meaningful work experience opportunities for her Students at a time when going to the office is no longer happening
My pledge: 
During the Pandemic the face2face time can no longer happen. It would be too easy to let my relationship with the careers advisor wither. My pledge is to continue with my regular dialogue with her online, sharing relevant digital ideas with her to ensure her creativity and passion to support her students continues.

Hang on, what's a pledge?

Hello, welcome to Inspire! This is a programme in which volunteers pledge their time to support friends, family, colleagues, or even their community, with digital skills learning. It's really simple:

  1. you learn about digital skills support and how to do it
  2. you make a pledge to help someone
  3. you do it!

If your volunteer scheme is part of the programme already and you want to get started, go here to register.

If your volunteer scheme isn't already part of Inspire did you know you can join it? It's open to workplaces, organisations, clubs, education and more. To talk about how to get involved, just give us a shout.
