Project Description

James Giles

Age 17, England

Being taught from a young age that you should help others, I have always done this with my younger brother who has learning difficulties. Starting a student newsletter at school when I was seven was my first social action and I carried this over to secondary school where I developed a news site and engaged my local community to stop job cuts at our Post Office.

My social action includes organising the largest hustings for two General Elections and my campaign that saved our local landmark roundabout.

I have raised £1,000 for charity Love Kingston, and I increased youth voice at school.
