StreetGames

StreetGames pledges to:

  • Create youth social action and training opportunities through high quality volunteering and youth led programmes.  Our aim is to empower young people to shape their own local sport and physical activity opportunities
  • Harness the enthusiasm and energy of young people and youth social action to help address the ‘holiday gap’ faced by families and young people living in Poverty.  Young people will be a key component of the delivery of the campaign ‘Fit and Fed’.  Fit and fed aims to tackle the issues of…
    • Holiday Hunger
    • Inactivity
    • Isolation
…faced by young people during the school holidays. Young people will therefore be included in the design and delivery of the campaign in their own local community.
  • Ensure young people are included in the design, delivery and evaluation of StreetGames events and programmes.
  • Advocate youth social action to decision makers and funding bodies, affirming their position as role models and the leaders of positive change through Doorstep Sport.
  • Celebrate and showcase through our communications; the success of young volunteers from within the StreetGames network
  • Continue to offer young people opportunities to volunteer and develop through youth social action
  • Evidence and communicate the benefits of youth social action across the StreetGames network of over 1000+ organisations, through practical and insightful dissemination
  • Be an advocate and promote the #iwill campaign across the StreetGames network and social media platforms

Over the last year we have worked hard to carry out our own Youth Action in Doorstep Sport pledge. Youth social action is at the heart of our organisation and we have had young people, via our young advisors programme, shape and lead a conference for young people; our annual youth awards, the StreetGames residential and the Summer camp.

It is with these experiences in mind and the growing awareness of the issues raised in the fit and fed campaign that Youth Social Action will play a significant part of how we deliver the campaign and change the lives of young people across the UK.

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?”
