Archbishop of York • 27th November 2017

“It is more blessed to give than to receive” Acts 20:35

This Advent the Youth Trust are challenging young people to use this time to think about giving in preparation to receive at Christmas.  Each day young people will be challenged to give one thing away, showing generosity to others. This could be time, acts of kindness or generosity, or materials possessions. 

Schools, youth clubs and individuals are encouraged to take part and ‘be the change you want to see’ in the lead up to Christmas.

Free resources are available to download for Primary and Secondary aged students from the Youth Trust website and each challenge will also be displayed on their twitter and facebook pages. 

The Youth Trust would love to hear about the acts of generosity taking place, so don’t forget to include them in your tweets @ABYyouthtrust #YTGenerosity.  The team look forward to hearing how young people across the country are giving, showing compassion and ‘being the change you want to see’ this Advent.
