LONDON, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- A British telecom company and a charity are recruiting schoolchildren to become "digital champions" to help adults learn to use the Internet.

The BT Group telecommunications company and extracurricular activity charity The Transformation Trust said 20,000 students between the ages of 11 and 19 have signed up to help the estimated more than 7 million British adults who have never used the Internet since the program began last year, the London Evening Standard reported Friday.

The groups said they are starting efforts to recruit 20,000 more "digital champions" in 2014.
