    Some of you may know me for my trolling on this forum but this is a serious post.

    With the prospect of becoming an unemployed bum at the end of the year, and the governments work experience scheme not being particularly comforting, I may start a movement called the British Youth Unemployment Movement or BYUM for short.

    However first I need to gauge the number of people that will be interested.

    This is what I propose:

    -Create BYUM website with a integrated forum (with regional subsections)
    -Use the forum to join other unemployed bums in your regional area to engage in entrepreneurial activity (think the apprentice but be realistic)
    -Use advertising/sponsor ship to generate money for projects

    Basically its a tool to help you generate ideas and find a group of people you can work with to form mini businesses and develop a wide range of skills. Hopefully you will then have something impressive to put on your CV or you may just start up a business!!!!!!

    Just a curious if slightly weird question, why not simply call it the Youth unemployment movement?

    YUM sounds so much better.

    Idea noted. BYUM is now YUM. I had been trying to get it to say BUM but it just wouldn't work

    I would have thought 'youth employment movement' makes more sense

    you sound like you're advocating unemployment whereas surely your aim is to counteract it!
    I am sure the exact name could be sorted later. I just wanting to see if others like the idea and would like to get involved
