Crowdskills aims to tackle youth unemployment connecting jobseekers to paid freelance projects.
Existing social programmes offer skills training or access to job opportunities. That is excellent, but not enough. Youth can create value for themselves and for businesses outside of the traditional employment paradigm. We help unemployed youth earn money, develop real experience, build confidence and increase their employability. They can continue working with us, explore further training opportunities or secure employment through our connections. We compete on cost with other digital agencies and compete on quality with other freelancer websites. Those platforms don’t work for youth, who cannot promote their skills effectively to clients who can’t risk working with them. Uniquely, we work with clients as a regular digital agency, but manage the projects internally through our freelancer platform.
