Just received full details of this event, looks like a goodun! :)

Innovate for Good, a Microsoft YouthSpark programme, is a global community enabling you to collaborate, inspire and support each other while using technology to make a difference in your communities.

On Tuesday 27th and Wednesday 28th August 80 young people from across the UK will meet in London to spend two days looking at social innovation and how technology can make a difference in their local community.

This sounds interesting, tell me more...

After spending the morning at the Microsoft offices in London, you will travel by coach to London Youth's Hindleap Warren Residential Centre. Through specific interactive training sessions and applied learning, you will then prepare a presentation on how you can improve your local community. The following day, back at the Microsoft offices, you will pitch your ideas to a panel of 'Dragons' and have the opportunity to become an ambassador for social innovation!

Awesome, how can I apply now?

This year’s Innovation for Good residential is open to all young people aged 16-25 who take an active role in their community. For example, you may volunteer as a youth leader at your local youth club, help out at your local community centre or help elderly people in your local area.

You must be available to meet at the Microsoft offices in London (a short walk from Victoria Underground station) at 09:30 on Tuesday 27th August and stay for the entire residential that concludes at 18:00 on Tuesday 28th August.

We are now accepting online applications, please complete this short application form and the London Youth team will be in contact with you shortly.
