Responding to Civil Society’s article on digital solutions to tackling youth unemployment, CSV Chief Executive Lucy de Groot, said:
“CSV has a great track record in helping low income families and older people get online, and we want to do more. We’re partnering with the BBC, UK Online and Nominet Trust to support local volunteers, who are well placed to give one-to-one support and make a sustained impact on social isolation, in communities across the UK.
“CSV is also demonstrating the positive impact of online communication. The CSV eMentoring programme digitally connects young people with professionals and university students, who provide the up-to-date advice and support they need to get onto the career ladder.”
