About the programme

A fantastic year of volunteering

Get Set for Community Action was an exciting volunteering programme, which aimed to strengthen relationships between young people and their local communities through the Olympic Values (friendship, excellence and respect) and the Paralympic Values (courage, determination, equality and inspiration).

Over 18,000 14-19 year olds – ‘Action Leads’ – worked in teams across the UK, building relationships with local community groups. A whopping 500 projects were planned and delivered. We have been so impressed with the hard work and achievements of all of those who have taken part in the programme!
