Why youth social action makes sense

Currently 4 in 10 young people aged between 10 and 20 get involved in activities that make a positive difference. However, research indicates that almost double this number would take part in things like campaigning, fundraising and volunteering if they had the chance.

Further studies confirm that social action develops 21st century employability skills, boosts access to further and higher education and supports enhanced well-being among young people. It creates a double benefit – to young people AND communities.

The #iwill campaign is working with hundreds of partner organisations from the business, education and voluntary sectors to enable young people, wherever they live and whatever their background, to have access to social action.
