We have been working in partnership with the ASOS Foundation since 2010 to support young people build key STEM skills and be inspired into the world of Fashion and Technology. 2017 marks a special year as the ASOS Foundation has reached a fantastic £1million fundraising milestone to support our work.
The ASOS Foundation has supported over 600 young people, delivering action-packed courses to support young people build confidence and skills in tech, retail, fashion, customer care and lots more.
From writing code, creating blogs and working on app development projects through Tech themed programmes to learning about a product’s life-cycle and building experience in buying, merchandising and brand through Fashion courses. All this, plus developing customer service skills and taking part in employability workshops through programmes delivered in the ASOS Customer Care Hub; ASOS volunteers have continued to deliver the most high-energy, interactive quality programmes.
ASOS Foundation has also helped us to inspire thousands more young people by creating our fantastic ASOS in STEM video content. These innovative videos have been a huge success, being viewed over 46,813 times already.
We are thrilled that this year ASOS is innovating with us to reach even more young people by working together on a special digital activation project by creating content and sharing hugely valuable insight how we can engage and reach more young people – at the heart of our strategy to reach one million young people in the next ten years.
