With over 5,000 members in Lancashire, Youth Action is an independent organisation working with young people aged 18-24 to build skills, abilities and confidence and to help them give something back to the community.
With great success, young champs have been passing on their skills to internet beginners.Involved at every stage, they’ve been inspiring locals and putting up promotional posters. 1:1 sessions are now being held daily; adapted according to the individual motivations and needs of the learner, while complete beginners’ are covering basics, including how to use a mouse and keyboard. Others are learning how to search for a job online or set up their online banking. 20-40 learners are receiving training every week!
Feedback so far has been extremely positive and lots of learners have already encouraged their friends and family to go along. In order to generate sustainability, rather than sticking with the same formula, Youth Action realises that each learner has individual needs and so sessions are constantly changing to incorporate new ideas. The organisation is also working hard to make sure everyone, wherever they are in the community, has a chance to benefit too.
