JLGB renews #iwill pledge to support youth social action

This year’s #iwill Pledge Day marks the end of Volunteers Week. As proud partners of Step Up to Serve’s #iwill Campaign, JLGB again pledges to support young people from hard to reach communities to take part in meaningful youth social action projects, through;

  • The JLGB will continue to expand its work to help to ensure young people from hard to reach and disadvantaged backgrounds can take part fully in meaningful and impactful social action that does not compromise their individual beliefs or values.

  • JLGB's 'eVOLve' collective impact initiative for youth volunteering, social action and accreditation will continue to lead the way in creating a step-change in empowering young people and benefitting communities through social action.

  • Through the eVOLve online passport and volunteering and skills matching system, we will continue to streamline the social action journey of awards, qualifications and opportunities, ensuring they are faith and culturally sensitive and accessable to all.

  • We will work to support even more charities to be youth-friendly and accessible, developing and creating with them a range of age-appropriate and progressive opportunities for youth social action.

  • We will aspire to do even more to increase youth participation in the decision making and design of volunteering opportunities, accredited courses and youth-led social action projects.

  • We will further help schools and community groups to prioritise social action and volunteering, by supporting teachers and youth workers with practical resources and management tools through eVOLve, as well as provide on the ground character-building programmes through our partnerships with DofE, NCS and vInspired.

  • Through JLGB’s #DoYourBit campaign we will actively encourage more adults to become volunteer leaders to help train, coach and mentor young people through character-building and social action programmes at local JLGB weekly groups across the UK.

  • Finally, we pledge to work with a cross collaboration of partners to replicate our unique work, so that the expertise, learning and digital technology developed by JLGB through the eVOLve platform can help other faith communities, disadvantaged young people and the mainstream youth sector.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Pears Foundation, the Maurice Wohl Charitable Foundation and Youth United for supporting these projects. To enquire about partnering with us please contact getinvolved@jlgb.org.
