Social Media Awareness Workshop
Social Media is a feature of daily life with tremendous power to share messages, images, video content and knowledge. But yet, many of our young people fail to make responsible digital decisions about the content they create or share. This workshop provides staff and students with an overview of how to use social media to foster a healthy digital footprint and a sharper awareness of how to reduce the risks and potential dangers.

Digital Skills Workshop
Digital Skills play an increasingly important role in our society. But too often assumptions are made that individuals can write, create, present, share or evaluate information in the correct format. In this workshop participants will learn how to responsibly communicate using technology.

Bespoke Mentoring Programme
We work with organisations to create bespoke mentoring programs for young people to ensure your outreach endeavors have an impact in the community. We create session resources and activities that align with your company vision and values, train your employees to deliver them effectively and track engagement and impact in your mentees. Programmes last as long as you wish to commit your workforce’s time, from an 8 week to a 2 year commitment.
Here is an example program we created for Google:
The Lighthouse Project – which targeted Black British 16-18-year-olds and paired them with a Google employee to boost their technology related employability skills. We created the 8-week project sessions and then managed the implementation; from the advertising; the application process; mentor training; and finally monitoring engagement and impact metrics.
Let us take the pressure off your outreach commitments. Contact us today to find out how your organisation can benefit from one of our mentoring projects.
