The #iWill campaign is a UK-wide campaign, set up in November 2013 by its coordinating charity Step Up to Serve, which seeks to increase participation in social action by young people aged 10-20.
The LFC Foundation, 12-week youth-led social action programme inspires youth voice, and empowers children and young people to identify and tackle the issues within their local communities that they feel most passionately about, whilst also supporting local charities and good causes.
The programme empowers participants to make a positive difference within their school and their local community. Pupils participating within the programme will develop leadership, organisational and negotiation skills whilst increasing their understanding of how everyone has the power to make a positive difference.
Within the programme pupils will explore the main ways in which social action can be delivered including raising awareness of specific issues by campaigning for change, volunteering, fundraising, peer mentoring and peer education.
The programme has been mapped to provide evidence and outcomes which align to the 6-character education outcomes within the OFSTED inspection framework.
#iWill is available free of charge to local schools and community organisations. LFC Foundation deliver the programme to years 3-6 in Primary schools, Years 7-9 in Secondary schools as well as having provision for specialist alternative education providers and SEND schools. There is also capacity to work with a number of classes across a number of year groups within different schools.
