It’s important that young people, in every community, feel connected to the issues around them and are empowered to make a positive change. This short pack, developed with Step Up To Serve as part of the #iwill campaign, gives examples of Give and Gain activities that develop the skills young people need to take practical action in their communities.

Career Explorers

Playground Explorers
The Playground Explorers Resource Pack 2013 contains 18 activities which aim to open children’s minds and encourage them to ask questions and explore the world around them.

The BEE Programme
The BEE programme (Teaching Business, Enterprise and Employability in Schools) runs workshops for children aged between 9 and 11 to develop their financial literacy and numeracy skills. Many of the activities used during the sessions can be easily adapted for Give & Gain. The BEE programme pack for Give & Gain Day 2012 contains many suggested activities.
