Find a Future

At Find a Future we recognise the valuable contribution that young people can make in enhancing all we do and pledge to offer them a range of meaningful volunteer and social action activities across our events and activities.

Find a Future will publicly affirm the benefits of engaging with young people through youth volunteer and social action programmes by:

  • Ensuring that we create high quality volunteer and social action opportunities through our volunteer and employability programmes at our national event and with local and national partners.
  • Working with Step Up to Serve and partners to promote social action and volunteer opportunities to all of our volunteers at our national show. Our 500 volunteers and all 75,000 young visitors will have the opportunity to access this information through our Sign Up Saturday feature and by inviting 2 #1will ambassadors to speak to all the young people.
  • Highlighting ways that students can get involved through Find a Future website and social media channels as well as by providing guidance and information to our team leaders and partners at the show.
  • Working with the Step up To Serve team to ensure that our young people are recognised and celebrated for their contribution to social action and volunteering.
  • Working with step up to Serve to ensuring that we stay informed with developments and opportunities in volunteering for young people.
  • Empowering, training & supporting young people volunteering with us to ensure they engage in meaningful youth social action opportunities.
  • Lending a voice to the social action agenda by nominating young people as #iwill ambassadors as appropriate and sharing stories of great volunteer and youth social action.
  • Working with our partners to showcase the benefits of supporting youth social action and volunteering to encourage them to be involved and support the development and recognition of youth social action.
  • Actively encouraging Find a Futures’ colleagues to give their time and skills to volunteer by making it easy and accessible.
We're still working on our pledge to the #iwill campaign. Next progress update is coming soon, so watch this space!

Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
"The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK. We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life. Over 350 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?"
