Change in Action - Youth led social action

What is Youth-led social action?

YCF understands youth-led social action to be creating opportunities for children and young people to design and deliver projects that will benefit others. These are some examples of social action:

  • campaigning about a local issue
  • tackling pollution
  • fundraising for charitable causes
  • organising events
  • raising awareness about mental health
  • combating racism and discrimination
  • organising and delivering training/events
  • mentoring
  • or enforcing positive messages using videos or music.

Anything and everything can be used in youth led social action, as long as, young people participate in the conception, planning and delivery of the activities.
