Teach First

  • Teach First strongly believes that all young people should develop the confidence, skills and resilience to achieve success within and beyond education. We will encourage our teachers and students to get involved with partners working to close the gap in Youth Social Action. For example we will partner with National Citizen Service and set a clear aspiration for our teachers and ambassadors to engage with NCS programmes as part of their leadership development from 2017. This will ensure more young people from lower socio-economic backgrounds benefit from the rich opportunities the programme provides.

We’ve just pledged to the #iwill campaign recently – watch this space for updates on our progress


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?”
