Young people aren’t just the leaders of tomorrow. They have the energy, skills and ideas to improve society and our environment today. Now, more than ever, we need to grow the Power of Youth.
4 in 10 young people aged between 10 and 20 are already taking part in youth social action – activities that make a positive difference to others or the environment. But we know that almost twice as many want to. They just need the chance.
Taking part in youth social action empowers and upskills young people; it improves outcomes for our communities; and it diversifies and sustains our organisations. Simply put – everyone benefits.
