Our Projects

Act For Change - Gen Z: A Generation for Change!

Gen Z is a new partnership project between Chilypep and Element Society, funded by the Act for Change Fund (Paul Hamlyn Foundation, Esmee Fairburn, the National Lottery Community Fund and the #iwill Fund.) 

We are working together to support young people to campaign on the things that matter to them, to make change and challenge social injustice and inequality.

We are currently on the search for future activists in Sheffield, who want to lead their own campaigns that challenge social injustice and inequality and from April, we will be running free 12-week activism training to young people
