Introducing the new Youth Social Action Quality Mark

Together with Vinspired, Ambition has created a unique set of quality standards to support youth and community organisations to develop impactful social action. The framework is structured around six principles that define great youth social action, as identified by the #iwill campaign:

  • Embedded
  • Youth-led
  • Reflective
  • Progressive
  • Challenging
  • Socially impactful

The quality mark, endorsed by Generation Change, has been piloted with organisations delivering youth social action in a range of contexts, including extracurricular activities in clubs and groups, to part of structured programmes such as the National Citizen Service. It costs £110 (discounted to £80 for Ambition/UK Youth members), which includes online resources and branded materials, assessment, feedback and certification.

“This excellent resource is really succinct and user-friendly. It’s ideal for young people and organisations who recognise the importance of evidencing their social action delivery - and most importantly it doesn’t contain any waffle!” Dave King, Director, Imagine You Can UK

“Social action is the broadest element of the National Citizen Service and it can be hard to pin down. This simple framework can be used to structure staff training to ensure sessions ultimately deliver better outcomes for young people.” Vicki Hutchison, NCS Manager, Hartlepool United

Organisations are required to sign up to Vinspired Exchange and to register young people for the Vinspired Awards to achieve the quality standard.

We are running two, free introductory webinars on 28th November and 13th December 2017. Read more here.
