#iwill is the campaign to make social action a part of life for 10-20 year-olds by 2020, and there are opportunities for 50 young ambassadors to help inspire others to take part.

NUS has pledged to support the growing social action movement through the #iwill campaign, which is now looking for nominations and applications for 50 ambassadors by 17 July.

Youth social action is defined as 'young people taking practical action in the service of others to create positive change'. This can be any type of volunteering or fundraising, whether helping people in your community or around the world.

The #iwill campaign has grown year on year as it aims to make social action a part of life by 2020. It promotes the double benefit of youth student action - the benefit to the young people taking part as well as the communities they are working in.

#iwill recruits 50 young ambassadors every year, who are 10-20 year-olds leading inspriational social action projects in their communities. They have demonstrated a strong commitment to social action and have commited to sharing their stories with others through the #iwill pledge which promises to continue making a difference to others.
