Our MiCommunity project used intergenerational volunteering to build a stronger sense of community and connectedness between young volunteers and older people, bridging differences in age, ethnicity and culture and challenging negative stereotypes. It enabled young people (aged 16-19) to share their IT skills with older people (aged 60+), many of whom had little or no IT knowledge or skills. We were awarded £352,000 by Team London and the Reuben Foundation to fund the project. We worked in partnership with seven London Age UKs – Barnet, Enfield, Hackney, Haringey, Hillingdon, Kensington & Chelsea and Redbridge - plus three Zenos IT Academies, to deliver the project, which ran from July 2011 to May 2012.
