Our Impact

How young people's voices are changing the world

Our Annual Impact Report is Here

At VotesforSchools, we know children and young people want to discuss the key talking points of the day and share their thoughts in order to make a difference. That’s why we are passionate about engaging with them and amplifying their voice.

Being heard is the crucial next step: our innovative voting platform allows them to cast their vote and leave comments. The benefits of having people of influence listen and care about what young people think are mutual, and allows everyone to feel informed, curious and heard. This is vital in today’s world, as it will empower future generations to use their voice and believe in the power that they have.

Our 2022-23 Report is here to guide you through some of the phenomenal work that has been achieved this year through our Data, Impact & Partnerships Team, as a direct result of the voice and views shared over the last 12 months.

What do we do?


VotesforSchools is passionate about equipping young people with the skills they need to live life beyond the school gates.

We make sure that young people are informed about what is happening in the world - and that their voices are heard. Each week, after hundreds of thousands of children take part in our lessons, they are invited to make an informed vote on the topic at hand.

After they've voted, we spring into action. We share their voices with numerous organisations across the world, ensuring that they are heard and action is taken.

Change-Makers in action


We are passionate about our children's voices having an impact on practice and policy- to really make a mark on their world. In addition to amplifying our weekly results, we work with a range of long-term partners who help elevate those voices to a whole new level. Just take a look at some of our projects and the impact that they have had:

How do we do it?

We build relationships. We believe that the key to change is working together. Together we can amplify the voices of young people to help bring about the change that they want to see.

Our partners & friends help us spread the movement in many ways. Many listen and engage with the children taking part in weekly votes, through responding to their comments and/or joining our Youth Advisory Board meetings to delve deeper into a topic at hand. Others support our mission by sponsoring schools in their local area, ensuring that more children can be informed, curious and heard.
