What The #%&@ is…Skyboxlive?

Skyboxlive is the ultimate form of social media specifically tailored for universities – they can truly build connections one event at a time. Skyboxlive is an IP TV service that enables the broadcast of any university activity (Live or On-Demand). From sport, music, performances, or a distinguished lecture series — to students and their families, alumni, and donors, plus their collective networks of friends and families, wherever they are in the world.

Imagine harnessing the power of a nationally-broadcast event, but targeted directly to the people most interested in your event…interesting?

WRG Teaming with Fulham FC Foundation & Barclays

Fulham FC Foundation and Barclays, via their Spaces for Sport (BS4S) initiative, contracted with the WRG to assess outcomes associated with their groundbreaking three-year partnership to provide participants with employability training and sport. Targeting youth not in education, employment, or training, the program aims to increase employment opportunities for ~300 16+ year old local UK youth through life skills development (e.g., communications, team work, work-related training, etc.) and sport participation. The merit of the research lies in assessing impacts associated with a socially  responsible sport intervention program on a group of community individuals.

Thanks to Fulham FC Foundation and Barclays for the partnership opportunity!
