    We got something similar to this up here in Newcastle. Its part of a scheme with New Deal to help the local community and all that. Me and my mate at work have both joined and we start our very first volunteering session on Monday 22nd. To be honest I am pretty much looking forward to it as its a chance to show people that the world of IT is not as fearful as what most people make it out to be!

    We will be "mentoring" people at a very basic level, then once they have picked up enough knowledge they can go from there on their own to either college or some sort of higher education course.

    I would say I am giving something back to the community but in essence most of the stuff I learned in IT I did it all myself. This is something that I would like to have put on my CV as well as have some sort of training experience under my belt. :biggrin
    Certifications: A+
