When you make a donation to The Mix, or fund one of our projects, you’re giving young people across the UK access to vital information and emotional support that changes (and sometimes saves) lives. You’re also funding young volunteers to develop digital skills, help others, gain confidence and have a better shot at being part of the digital economy.
The challenges young people face today are immense. Help us better reach and support them by donating what you can.
Why Partner with The Mix?
We work with corporate partners in the same way we work with young people: collaboratively, honestly, and with a commitment to innovation.
Our partners are embedded in our organisation, ensuring they have access to our unique youth insight and research, as well as our flexible skills-based volunteering opportunities.
Creating these links across all areas of our organisation ensures we can build truly strategic partnerships, where both parties are working towards a common goal: challenging each other to bring about real long-term social change for young people.
Crucially, YouthNet offers the most cost-effective way of engaging and supporting young people on a national level. So, if young people are important to your business – as customers, staff, or as a focus of your CSR work – contact our development team.
Support young people, and simultaneously…
- Enhance your brand’s reputation by connecting with young people through a valued and trusted youth charity.
- Gain valuable insight into young people through co-creation sessions or research projects.
- Achieve measurable social impact.
- Invest in digital innovation for social good.</li
- Improve your offering to a young customer base.
- Provide your staff with skills-based volunteering opportunities that will directly benefit YouthNet’s end users.
Ways We Can Work Together
By supporting The Mix, you’ll see measurable, scalable impact on the lives of young people. You can choose to support our overall mission, or contribute towards a specific project focusing on one of our key areas – mental health, employability, housing, and sex and relationship issues.
We also need funders who want to support our volunteering and digital social action work.
We’d love the opportunity to work with you, to engage, inspire and unite your staff as your official Charity of the Year. We support young people digitally, so all of your staff will be able to directly engage with the young people their fundraising benefits, as well as volunteer digitally from their office or at home. Digital is scalable and efficient. Each £25 raised will provide real-time support to 15 young people. By working with YouthNet, your company could make a huge impact.
There are a number of ways to work with us to differentiate and enhance your brand, and improve your conversation with your young customer base. You can work with us to produce and launch a campaign around a specific topic, sponsor and co-produce a series of content for our digital ecosystem, or run a CRM campaign with us, benefiting from an association with a brand trusted by 1m young people in the UK.
We offer flexible skills-based opportunities, giving your staff the opportunities to make a real long-term impact on the way we support young people, whilst contributing to their own professional development. This could see you support us with research, data analytics, user experience, social media or marketing. We’re always looking for ways to add value to our work.
We appreciate that it’s not always money, but often products and services that your company can offer. Some of our partners provide us with media space, training, software licences, or products to incentivise our polls and surveys. If you have an idea, we’d love to hear about it.
