During school closures, Youth Fed has launched their digital platform of free online courses for young people with a chance to win an incredible prize for taking part in just three courses. The courses are aimed at providing support to young people during lockdown and also to help them build new skills for their future.
The online programmes consist of digital workshops covering a range of subjects such as cyber safety, employability, knife crime awareness, money management and mental health awareness. This offering is also accompanied by a range of online games, quizzes and daily challenges, where young people have the opportunity to take part and compete in order to win prizes.
Chief Executive Chris Hindley, comments: “We’re delighted to be able to continue to support our expanding network of young people through online delivery, both during this current uncertain time and into the future.
“Whilst we have been developing our virtual youth clubs, digital training, online mentoring and online skills programmes since long before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, the current climate has given us the opportunity to adopt these practices at a greater speed, enabling us to continue to support our young people who need us most during this time.
“The world is very much moving online, and youth services and the way we support young people are no exception. This digital platform allows us to not only meet the growing need for online youth services, but also helps us to expand our reach outside of the North West of England by being able to support young people across the nation.”
In addition to this, we have also recently been awarded the Cyber Essentials Certificate – demonstrating the high standard of our IT systems and the charity’s dedicated approach to cyber security.
