Digital Xtra Fund is committed to developing long-term and mutually beneficial partnerships with a range of companies and organisations operating in Scotland who share our passion for developing the computing skills of our young people.
We are working with our Partners and Supporters to sustain and grow the Fund in order to continue supporting organisations who delivering computer science activities for young people.
To date the Fund has supported 33 projects which have directly engaged nearly 20,000 young people across Scotland in computing science, with a particular focus on engaging those from harder to reach groups. The projects will bring new opportunities to rural and disadvantaged areas as well as encouraging more girls to try computing.
Imagine what we can do working together. Imagine the numbers of young people we could fire up about technology, not as consumers but as digital makers. Imagine how many of those young people will see computing and digital in a new light and actively seek to enter the tech industry as a result…
Supported by businesses, organisations, and individuals with a common will to help young people succeed in an increasingly digital world, Digital Xtra Fund has several supporter and partnership options available from one-off donations to exclusive funding rounds.
