Aims

Youth Social Action (YSA)

Refers to activities that young people do to make a positive difference to others while developing key skills and attributes and having fun. YSA can take place in various contexts (i.e. at home, schools, youth clubs etc) and can include volunteering, fundraising, campaigning or supporting peers. We believe social action can play an essential role: in young lives, the success of a school, the local community or more.

Resource Hub

Our Resource Hub aims to act as a Youth Social Action search engine, offering tailored results to inspire and guide.

Youth Social Action Toolkit

Youth Social Action Toolkit

Our Youth Social Action Toolkit has been carefully developed by industry professionals with input from young people to guide school leaders, support staff, and young people through a Youth Social Action project. Our curriculum guides clearly outline how YSA can be integrated into the curriculum of schools with limited time.

 

We don’t gatekeep – by sharing our sector knowledge and resources, we aim to enrich the lives of all young people by fostering skills development, improving agency and wellbeing, and promoting active citizenship.

Inspire

The first step of the YSA process is to be inspired by an issue you care about! Check out our inspirational case studies on what you could do!

Explore

The second step of the YSA process is to explore your options! You‘ll need to research the issue that inspired you to take action to understand how you can help.

Ready to start planning your project? Access our Youth Social Action Toolkit here.

Plan

The third step of the YSA process is to plan your project! Lucky for you, we have a Project Planning Template for that.

Act

The fourth step of the YSA process is to carry out your plan! This is when the physical activities involved like fundraising, campaigning, and volunteering kick off.

Reflect

The fifth and final step of the YSA process is to reflect! Looking back at your plan, did you achieve your aims?  What went well and what didn’t go so well? Can you sustain your project? Or did you take steps to ensure further projects aren’t needed?
