More youth social action

Our recent coverage of  the new campaign to encourage youth social action, Step up to Serve, was written just before its launch. So we missed the government’s news release. Personnel professionals’ body CIPD also released a report ‘Youth social action and transitions into work: what role for employers?’, with the message that youth volunteering programmes offer a complimentary mix of benefits for business and the wider society.

NCVO has a discussion article on ‘Step up to Serve: A real chance to support young people’s volunteering’, on why it may be different from previous official volunteering initiatives.
