parkrun pledges to:

  • work with Step up to Serve to promote the positive role young people can play in voluntary sector organisations and the benefits it can bring to the individual and to communities
  • encourage parkrun events across the UK to engage young people in volunteering roles
  • celebrate young volunteers within parkrun and alert them to the opportunity to become #iwill ambassadors when the campaign is recruiting.
  • work with Step up to Serve and the parkrun Research Board to build the evidence base around the value of youth social action.

We’re still working on our pledge to the #iwill campaign. Next progress update is coming soon, so watch this space!


Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 350 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
