No, thanks

Everybody can be great.  Because anybody can serve.  You don't have to have a college degree to serve.  You don't have to know the second theory of thermodynamics in physics to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.  – Martin Luther King, Jr

Youth & Students

What’s the big idea?

Tearfund Youth There’s something fresh that’s happened to us lately. We’ve all noticed it. It’s in the air, different to how we’ve felt it before.

What is it? Excitement!

We’re feeling excited about the future. We’re feeling excited about what we can do together, transforming the lives of vulnerable and marginalised people around the world. Making a difference to children like Peah.

OK, so we’ve said that we’re looking to unite Christians around the world to set this magnificent change in motion, but there’s even more to say than that. We’re not looking for a single celebrity to unite behind. We don’t need a superhero to do all this for us. We just need you. Lots of you. Thousands, in fact. You with all your passion and energy, bringing your hassles and homework, and your hopes and dreams too. We just want you.

Get involved

Find out what other activists are doing and how you can get involved by visiting the Tearfund UK youth website. You can get stuck into social action, prayer events, campaigning or fundraising.
