We Are With #iwill

We Are With #iwill

Tash Bright No Comment

Sheffield Futures is joining the celebrations of the #iwill national campaign, which focuses on the impact young people are making in their communities. This week is especially important as 21st-25th November is #iwillweek, which highlights new and existing events and activities taking place across the country.

The #iwill campaign promotes social action among 10-20 year-olds. This includes activities such as campaigning, fundraising and volunteering, all of which create a double-benefit – to communities and young people themselves. Sheffield Futures has worked hard to ensure that young people from all different backgrounds and circumstances are given the chance to participate in social action projects.

Young people, such as those who volunteer for our youth social action scheme, Sheffieldr, are already doing fantastic things in their communities. So far, they have been involved in visiting old people’s homes, renovating a run down nursery, painting murals and litter picking.

Youth social action gives young people the chance to develop life skills that will help them succeed in the future. Working in teams with other young people means that participants harness their leadership and communication skills, whilst understanding the benefits of listening to each other and working in a team to get things done.

If you want to find out more about volunteering or getting involved in our youth social action projects, please call us o 0114 201 2800 or email us at enquiries@sheffieldfutures.org.uk.
