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?
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!
