Understanding the drivers of youth social action

The #iwill campaign have commissioned research to understand what young people coming from lower socio-economic groups understand by social action and what motivates them either to engage or not to engage.

They would like to hold two focus groups here in the North East, one with young people aged 13 to 15 who are currently engaging in youth social action and another with young people aged 13 to 15 who are not currently engaging in youth social action.

Each focus group will last approximately an hour and they are looking for 6 -10 young people to take part.

Both focus groups will be on Tuesday 26th September, at Virgin Money’s offices in Gosforth. The groups will take place outside of school time.

If you are working with young people who you think would be happy to take part please let VMF know by return email by Friday 17th August.
