Project Description

Age 17, England – West Midlands

Social action gives me hope that young people can work together to bring about positive change.

Right now, I volunteer at my local church youth club and am a peer mentor at college to three younger children, who experience issues such as bullying and mental health. By offering my support, I hope I can help them in their journey to recovery.

I’ve also recently joined Birmingham City Youth Council, where we discuss important topics such as knife crime.

All young people should take part in social action so we can grow, help others and co-create our future.
