Founded by Founders4Schools and BCG Digital Ventures, supported by the Department for Digital Culture Media and Sport, Digital Boost aims to support the six million British small businesses and charities impacted by COVID-19 on their digitisation journey.
Digital Boost does this by providing a community of digital expert volunteers to support charities and small businesses through “Boost Calls” (1-on-1 support calls) “Boost Workshops” (interactive webinars) and “Boost Skills” (curated resources on digitisation).
Our ask from you: join Digital Boost as a volunteer or organisation, and spread the word! We want to help spread the word around Digital Boost so that as many volunteers, and as many small businesses and charities sign up to the service as possible. This is what you can do:
1. Become a Digital Expert volunteer and run 121 mentoring calls or host virtual workshops by filling out Digital Boost’s volunteer form. Volunteering is completely flexible – you choose how many 1hr calls to accept, and when!
2. Sign up as a Small Business or Charity to receive free expert support by filling out Digital Boost’s organisation form
3. Share Digital Boost’s website with your networks, asking people to join as volunteers or as organisations – or to spread the word themselves by posting on their own networks!
