Recognising Young Peoples’ Achievements

The Schools in Action (1993-2007) and  the Young Citizens Award programme (2007-2010) gave support and recognition to projects led by young people which demonstrated their commitment to be active citizens, making a difference in their communities .   Both awards were made possible with the sponsorship and support of the Vodafone Foundation. 

The programme commenced each autumn and culminated each summer in a  celebratory event, typically held in June, at which all the young people showcased their work and experiences – as well as generally having a great day!  Projects typically fell into one or more of the following categories:

  • Peer Mediation
  • Global Citizenship
  • Environmental
  • Arts 
  • Community safety
