Youth Social Action

Big Question: How can character be developed through youth social action?

The Centre has conducted research into the practice of youth social action and how young people can make acts of service into a lifelong habit. Engaging in meaningful social action can have a recognised 'double benefit' to both the recipient of the social action and the individual undertaking it, for the positive development of character.

The Centre's two leading research reports Building Character Through Youth Social Action and A Habit of Service provide an evidence base, the partnership the Centre has established with the #iwill campaign has facilitated access to multiple and varied charities, young people, and policymakers seeking to explore the benefits of social action with young people.
