What do you hope joining EPIK will achieve?

Young people are not all academic, we need to recognise and encourage those compelled to interact with digital technology into programming, coding, App-making etc to ensure a future for both them and the industry. We can promote new skills and opportunities -as a potential job or just for interest and/or passion and also address a potential skills shortage in the UK.

How can we help support you to achieve your objectives?

Aside from the many y/people on the estate and in our youth club, I have a fantastic God Son, who doesn't find school easy. He can erect complex 3D models in hours and questions how everything works. Unlike most of us he is not merely a consumer and user of games and other technologies, but wants to know how to change and create them.

Can you bring a laptop and/or a musical instrument with you to an event, for yourself or your child to use?

I am no IT mentor, but I am willing to help.

Introduction

I manage a v successful resident-led charity in a recognised area of disadvantage, high Benefit take-up & youth under-achievement. I have offered space for free, to interest, mobilise & engage y/people in fun & creative Digital making & interaction
