YouthNet bus gives kids chance to surf the internet for free

Disadvantaged children will be able to surf the net for free through young people's charity YouthNet's e-bus project.

The e-bus will travel to poor areas to provide free internet services to communities that may not have access to IT facilities. The charity will also use the trips to promote thesite.org, its information and counselling web site.

YouthNet will also take the e-bus to music festivals and events to raise awareness and help with drink and drugs issues.

Besides the bus initiative, YouthNet has provided youth centres and homeless drop-in clinics with internet kiosks as part of its Surf-it campaign.

The charity will put 50 internet kiosks in pubs across the country in a bid to reach students.

"The e-bus is our latest project to give people the opportunity to surf the net for free,

said Jamie Thomas, marketing and operations director at YouthNet. "The internet provides many useful services such as helping people to apply for jobs."
