“We’re delighted to pledge our support to the fantastic #iwill campaign. We are passionate about raising young leaders who are committed to serving others and being the change they want to see through social action. The evidence shows that schools and colleges remain one of the best routes to helping young people engage in meaningful social action and the younger we can begin the more likely we are to encourage long-term habits of volunteering. Our Young Leaders Awards for schools begins at KS1 and can run right up to Post 16 – providing opportunities for young people aged 5-18 to benefit from this model of character education.” Dan Finn, CEO at The Archbishop of York Youth Trust
