Evolution of Corporate Social Responsibility: Championing the Youth

Championing the Modern Approach

Once, ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ (CSR) was a novel term for those of us assisting the social housing sector. The essence was simple: contribute to the communities we served. Often, this meant rejuvenating a communal space, transforming a once-neglected site into a hub for all.

Fast forward, and the terminology might have shifted to ‘Social Value’, but the core remains unchanged: making a genuine impact.

Investing in Tomorrow’s Leaders

Mila has previously contributed to a number of youth-centered initiatives.  The idea is simple yet profound: invest in the younger generation now, and they may become the change-makers of tomorrow, fostering a self-sustaining cycle of social value.  This commitment to sustainability and genuine societal contribution is what drives many businesses in our sector today.

The epiphany to pivot towards youth-oriented initiatives came from an early endeavor: organising a trip for young children from London’s urban centers to the iconic London Zoo.  Many of these youngsters were experiencing the zoo’s wonders—its myriad of creatures and the sensory overload of sights, sounds, and smells—for the very first time.

Witnessing these children’s awe and subsequent gratitude was an eye-opener. The avalanche of positive feedback solidified the belief in championing opportunities for the youth, be it through sports, travel, or holistic development programs.

The Potential for Profound Change

The underlying philosophy remains steadfast: Empower the youth with opportunities, and the seeds sown today may yield a verdant tomorrow. As these young minds grow and flourish, they might also harbor the spirit of giving back, continuing the virtuous cycle of social value.

The true impact of such endeavors might be a slow burn, but the potential for profound change aligns perfectly with the initial vision of CSR: making a difference by contributing meaningfully to the community.
