We’re celebrating how youth social action helps build communities this #iwillWeek – join us!
This week, 12-16 November 2018, is #iwillWeek which serves as a focal point for anyone and any organisations to communicate the benefits of youth social action. This year our focus is on young people. Their voices. Their impact. Their story.
#iwillWeek is a yearly celebration of the anniversary of the inception of the #iwill campaign. The #iwill campaign is a national initiative, led by Patron HRH The Prince of Wales, that launched in 2013 with high-level cross-party support. The campaign has a goal of enabling 10 to 20 year-olds from all backgrounds to have access to volunteering, campaigning and fundraising opportunities by 2020. We call this youth social action – making a difference through practical action in the service of others.
It is an independent cross-party campaign, led by 875 organisations from across sectors, of which we are proud to say we’re one. We believe that enabling more young people, wherever they live and whatever their background, to become active citizens, will have a long-term, unifying impact on the future of our country.
Across our network of community organisations linked to the 72 EFL football clubs young people make a massive impact. This week we’ll be celebrating some of the work that they do for their community.
