The Jubilee Centre for Character & Virtues

  • Jubilee Trust will research the development of character values and virtues in young people who take part in youth social action programmes. The research will enable a greater understanding of the impact of youth social action on character and its potential double benefit.
  • We will supply a research fellow to lead the research.
  • Develop appropriate tools and methodology for measuring character in youth social action settings.
  • Work with the Step Up To Serve partners to carry out the research.
  • Gather data and analyse findings.
  • Reporting on research and publishing findings.
We will continue to support Step Up To Serve and the whole Youth Social Action sector by continuing to undertake in depth and robust research into the impact of Youth Social Action on character and virtue. We shall also continue to celebrate young people who have undertaking outstanding examples of Youth Social Action through the Jubilee Awards for Service and supporting the #iwill Ambassadors.
Quote from Professor James Arthur, Director at the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues and member of the #iwill campaign Advisory Council
"The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues is proud of its close association and the joint work it has undertaken with Step Up To Serve and the #iwill campaign. Together we have been able to bring researchers and practitioners together to explore big questions such as ‘how does social action transform the character of young people as well as the communities they live in?'"
