The #iwill campaign is working with organisations across the UK to encourage and enable more young people to make a difference in their communities. The campaign has an overall goal of increasing the number of 10-20 year olds in the UK regularly taking part in social action (practical action in the service of others to create positive change, such as volunteering, campaigning or fundraising) to 60% by 2020.
To support us in this aim, we are recruiting a diverse range of young people to become #iwill Ambassadors, to recognise and celebrate their commitment to social action. We hope that this will encourage others to follow in their footsteps. To be an Ambassador gives a platform to promote your organisations, social action projects, and future ambitions via blogs or speaking slots at events. Our current #iwill Ambassadors have had opportunities such as meeting our Patron HRH The Prince of Wales, campaign supporters Lawrence Dallaglio, Alex Jones, and Suzanna Reid; being interviewed on BBC Radio 1; and joining networking sessions with CEOs and senior leaders across the UK. To find out more about the campaign, and hear about our current Ambassadors, head to www.iwill.org.uk.
The #iwill campaign is coordinated by the charity Step Up To Serve, and to recruit these Ambassadors, we are working in partnership with the Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues at the University of Birmingham. This pioneering research centre promotes the value of character development in a range of contexts around the UK and we are thankful for their continued support.
