Now more than ever, small businesses need digital skills to survive. Digital Boost connects them with expert professionals to help them grow.
Visa is proud to invite our employees to support the Digital Boost mission to help small businesses survive and thrive during these unprecedented times. We invite you to sign up and offer 1 hour of your time as often as you can to virtually mentor small business owners in areas where you have expertise/experience.
By registering as a volunteer today, you are not committing to any specific time. You are simply putting your hand up to say you’re happy to help small businesses when you can. Once you are matched with a small business seeking mentorship in your area of expertise/experience, you will always have the choice to accept or decline invitations to join a ‘boost’ call based on your availability at the time.
After your 121 mentorship call, be sure to use Benevity to log your volunteering hours. As a reminder, you will earn US $10 or the GBP equivalent per hour that you can direct to a charity of your choosing, plus you have a chance to win US $1000 or the GBP equivalent! You may even like to consider donating your volunteering rewards to Founders4Schools, the UK charity which built on its success as an edu-tech charity connecting young people with business role models, to develop the Digital Boost concept for small business owners.
Without essential digital skills, many small organisations will be left behind. Your help can make a real impact.
Match with charities and businesses that you feel strongly about, and help them thrive.
Connect with a network of experts from top companies in tech, consulting and finance.

Time speaking to Digital Boost has given us the confidence to step further into the digital world, a world that we were barely involved in until 8 weeks ago. They helped us understand the process of building a digital ad and gave us the tools to continue building and refining these ads for better results in acquiring new customers.Join Tom as a volunteer
