WE (UK)

WE (UK)

WE is a movement that brings people together and gives them the tools to change the world. Through its unique family of organisations, WE is empowering people at home, around the world and with its social enterprise.

In the UK, the WE Schools programme provides free educational resources for teachers and a range of learning opportunities for students — including a full calendar of action campaign ideas. WE Schools challenges young people to identify the local and global issues that spark their passion and then empowers them with the tools to take action.

  • We will inspire young people in primary and secondary schools across the UK to get involved in social action, by offering them free educational resources, campaigns, assemblies and workshops, as well as dedicated support from WE staff.
  • We will bring together 12,000 young people from across the UK at WE Day, our annual celebration of active citizenship, where students earn their tickets through taking action. World-renowned speakers and performers will inspire another year of incredible change.
  • We will celebrate the youth social action that happens in the thousands of schools we work with across the UK to dispel myths around what young people can achieve and highlight the great practice that is already taking place in these schools.
  • We will promote our educational resources and lesson packages to primary and secondary schools to integrate active citizenship into the classroom.

Through its WE Schools programme, WE has engaged over 3,000 schools across all four corners of the UK in social action. Every year, WE celebrates their impact on local and global issues at WE Day.

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 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
