#iwill is a UK-wide campaign that aims to make social action part of life for as many young people as possible by the year 2020. Warwick Volunteers is pledging its support to the campaign and highlighting that when young people take part in meaningful social action, everyone benefits.
#IWillWeek is taking place between 12-16 November 2018 to celebrate the stories of young people by enabling them to describe the impact they’re having on the communities and causes they care so much about.
To celebrate #IWillWeek 2018 the Warwick Volunteers Exec Committee have each written a blog about their experience of volunteering and the impact that its had on them and the lives of others. Click on the links below to read more.
