Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we are not running any face-to-face youth provision at this time. However, the good news is that JLGB Virtual is continuing every Monday - Thursday until the end of August. Watch now at www.jlgb.org/virtual


Find out how Creative Skills have had a major impact on young people through corporate social responsibilty with JLGB

Corporate partnerships are a vital revenue stream for the JLGB and companies like Creative Skills have had a major impact on young people as part of their corporate social responsibility. Through benefit in kind and donation of services and time we are able to provide more activities that reach the entire Jewish community. This includes providing a comprehensive range of local weekly activities, national awards and international programmes, all designed to remove barriers and engage thousands of young people.

Instead of offering 'off the shelf' packages, we work with each corporate partner to look at the shared values of our organisations and discuss how a partnership can support young people while bringing mutual benefit to society and enhancing the partners’ business profile through corporate social responsibility.

There are many ways in which corporates can support JLGB, with opportunities ranging from printing our Summer Camp or Israel Tour t-shirts and purchasing or hiring instruments or equipment to larger scale projects such as sponsoring a minibus, supporting our Duke of Edinburgh's Award provision or offering pro bono support including digital expertise.

One of our most outstanding corporate partners is Creative Skills who have helped us build the evolve digital platform which is the backbone of JLGB’s ‘evolve – youth volunteering and skills initiative’.

The evolve platform streamlines the way young people are matched to volunteering placements and record their experiences. evolve is unique because it aligns volunteering and social action projects to national awards such as The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, vinspired and NCS, creating an age progressive journey for young people to fully access the rewards and recognition they deserve.

Talking about evolve, JLGB Chief Executive, Neil Martin OBE recently said;

“Addressing the gap between education and the workplace, evolve uses digital technology to match young people with opportunities based on the skills, interests and career ideas that they currently have and would like to learn. Built into evolve are the necessary tools to help young people discover opportunities and increase their awareness of other activities, awards and recognition which they can pursue. More importantly, evolve’s collective impact provides parents, charities, schools, youth groups and businesses with the tools to encourage the young people they work with to access these opportunities, activities and awards, and manage their progress to see these through to their completion.”

Discussing the partnership, Director of Creative Skills, Pramod Nahata said:

“Creative Skills are delighted to do some corporate social responsibility and it is great for our team to build a website and do programming for a charity that is doing so much to benefit the future of young people. It has been a pleasure to work with the JLGB team to make the evolve dream a reality.”

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Pramod and his team of programmers, for everything they have done to support JLGB and help us revolutionise volunteering.

JLGB have exciting plans to expand, reach and provide even more Jewish young people with a positive future, but we need more corporate partners to help us to achieve our mission.
