Young Social Innovators fires young people’s passion to change the world for good!
The school has had a long and important connection to Young Social Innovators (YSI). Young Social Innovators (YSI) promotes education for social innovation. It gives everybody an opportunity to use their creativity to respond to social issues and contribute to a fairer, more caring and equal society.YSI hopes to empower and support young people to realise their potential as social innovators and to give them the skills and confidence to tackle the social issues facing them, their communities and wider society. It puts young people in the driving seat. It asks them to examine the world through a new lens and to reimagine the type of society they would like to live in – one that is more caring, equal and fair. But more than that, it challenges them to put their ideas into practice and to bring their vision to reality. It is about taking action. It is about working together as a team. Sometimes failing. Sometimes starting again. But always learning. And learning by doing. Involvement with YSI leads to the development of confident and creative young people now equipped with the tools required for life in the 21st century. And they will do great things.
Over the years, the school has worked on many projects for YSI, including Road Safety.
