First Give

First Give works in partnership with secondary schools to help young people to give their time, tenacity and talents to improve their local communities.

The First Give Programme is delivered through a fully resourced scheme of work that is interactive and student-led. Over eight lessons, the Programme encourages an entire year group of students to identify social issues in their area and engage with local charities that address them. The students will then have the opportunity to compete for £1,000 of grant money. Teams will do this by advocating for their charity in a school competition.
