We had the privilege of hosting the Youth Summit for Free The Children UK yesterday! It was an incredible event involving some of our neighboring schools. The children were brought together for a day of social justice learning and leadership building and were left feeling a real buzz to make a positive change in the world.
The Youth Summit helped children to understand global issues, build a plan of action, and realise their potential. Through a series of interactive workshops and activities, they were equipped with the understanding of how to create social change in our local and global communities.
Children learned about real life stories of poverty and child exploitation, including the inspirational story of Malala Yousefzai.
At the Youth Summit, children had the chance to connect and share experiences and interests with other like-minded children to develop the 'leader' inside them.
Our children will also have the opportunity to hear inspirational speeches and personal stories from amazing Free The Children and Me to We speakers at We Day 2015 next week at Wembley Arena, London. WATCH THIS SPACE...
