Young Greenwich is proud to support the #iwillWeek campaign, encouraging and celebrating social action amongst young people.
Teenagers who attend Valley Central youth hub in Charlton celebrated the week by contributing to Charlton Athletic Community Trust (CACT)’s ‘Donate a Coat’ campaign.
By donating their old coats at Valley Central youth hub they have helped others and earned themselves tickets to Charlton Athletic’s first home game of 2017.
Other social action projects across Young Greenwich include the Duke of Edinburgh Award, which encourages young people to volunteer in their community.
The Jack Petchey Foundation Achievement Award allows young people who go the extra mile to be rewarded. Earlier this month, Tommy Rogers donated a PlayStation 4 to his youth club with the proceeds of his Jack Petchey award win.
Next month, young people from Hawksmoor youth hub will be putting on a carol concert at Lakeview care home in Thamesmead.
Head of Youth Service Jeannette Harrison said “We really encourage young people who get involved with the youth service to become more active citizens.
Young Greenwich rewards social action and look to broaden horizons, a key aim of the #iWillweek campaign: which we are very happy to support.”
