The Jubilee Centre for Character and Virtues has launched, in collaboration with Step Up To Serve’s #iwill campaign, a Statement on Youth Social Action and Character Development. The statement was developed through a consultation at St. George’s House, Windsor, on the 29th and 30th September 2014 by the Jubilee Centre, Step Up To Serve, young people involved in social action and representatives from various organisations. The Statement sets out the ways in which youth social action is an effective and meaningful way to develop young people’s character virtues. The Statement will be presented to HRH The Prince of Wales, and Step Up To Serve's Advisory Council, on 20th November.
