We understand the incredible amount of dedication and effort Youth Leaders invest in planning and engaging with youth groups. To help – we’ve created ‘Go Make A Difference’ – a free to enter national competition complete with awards, prizes and resources to complement your summer youth schedule and make a lasting difference in your community.
Here’s 5 reasons you should Go MAD this summer…
1. Actually making a difference
Empower your youth group to get out and go make a difference using a campaign format that is designed around initiative, tangible results and deserved recognition for positive contribution.
2. Access to project resources
To help shape your summer Youth programme schedule, we’ve collated a number of resources to support and inspire your project. This includes a comprehensive Leaders Guide, example safeguarding forms and 101 community ideas to help kick-start your groups creative input.
3. Maximum impact & support
We’ve partnered with the CPA (Christian Police Association) who are on hand for any groups wanting to connect with local community officers and get help identifying relevant issues that need addressing in your community. The project also has the backing of Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney, National lead for young people and the NPPC – National Police Chief’s Council.
4. Gain the trust of your community
Being active in your local community goes a long way to breaking the stigma that young people are only interested in themselves. This is a chance for your group to be seen taking the initiative by actively researching and tackling real issues that make a difference to the community they live in.
5. Put your youth group on the map & win promotion and prizes
Send us updates throughout the course of your project via our website and we’ll help promote the great work you’re doing through our various media channels. If your group goes on to win the competition, in addition to the £1000 prize that will be handed out on awards day – your story could be translated into a professionally produced promotional video to help celebrate and raise the profile of your Youth Group.
