Involving schools within Yorkshire & Humber with Social Action
Social Action Club is powered by Counting Hope and aims to support schools and students to create social action in their local communities. We‘re a group of young people who work with the likes of WE, Diana Award and North East Lincolnshire Council to organise our annual event and help young people gain skills through social action that will help them in their careers.
RELIVE WE DAY SOCIAL ACTION ClUB 2017
On Thursday the 6th of April 2017 our third event took place in Grimsby and inspired over 200 people from the Yorkshire & Humber, with some schools traveling almost an hour to be part of the amazing day! We can’t describe the atmosphere on the day – it was incredible and absolutely everyone got involved. It didn’t just stop at 3 PM either… we’ve heard how schools have taken what they learned and used it to start new social action projects!
Like WE Day UK, the day was about people coming together to make a difference and celebrating social action. With performers coming from as far as Wales and speakers from as far as London, it’s fair to say that happened and any school that couldn’t come missed out. We’ve set ourselves a challenge though, WE Day Social Action Club 2018 is going to even bigger and even better. There’s limited tickets available, so be sure to book now and come along to the best event in Grimsby – there’s nothing quite like it!
Join The Conversation
It’s time social action caught up with social networking, and we’re making that happen! Our website is more than just a place to get information and get tickets for events, we’ve built our very own social network too. It’s designed specifically for schools to talk about social action and nothing else.
The idea is that the more of us there are the bigger the difference that can be made, and the internet gives us the ability to connect with people. As a school, you’ll be able to use the social action to share ideas, gather opinions, discuss projects and even find ways to collaborate with other schools that you may have never otherwise too. We also want you to shout about the projects happening within your school, because that’s worth celebrating. Best of all, thanks to our supporters it doesn’t cost a single penny for schools to be part of.
We had the privilege of attending the grimsby WE Day Social Action Club 2017. This event was enormously inspirational to our students who had the honour of performing as a choir at the event as well as listening to inspirational talks by some amazing people who work within the community. So inspiring that our students are already looking forward to the next academic year on what they can do for others. I cannot thank the WE Day organisers and Andy Green enough for the amazing chance and experience for my students.
