Bring About Change

A youth-led social action programme for secondary and post-16 learners.

Building on the success of our popular Make a Difference Challenge for primary aged children, Young Citizens has developed Bring About Change: a community action programme for young people aged 11+.

The programme equips young people with the skills, knowledge and confidence to investigate and solve issues in their community through creating meaningful social action projects that tackle issues they feel strongly about.

The resources

All educators working with groups of young people on social action will receive access to a comprehensive online package of training and resources to help them set up projects that are impactful and youth-led.

Topics include:

  • What goes into an effective community action project, and how to go about igniting the passion in young people
  • How to make community projects youth-led
  • A three-part structure for engagement: Get Ready, Take Action, and Bring About Change
  • Example timetables for different models of delivery

The programme will be available widely from September 2022, at an introductory cost of £149 for a 12 month licence to include up to three named educators per registration.


The production of this programme has been made possible thanks to a grant from the Co-op Foundation #iwill Fund.
