The String Movement

The String Movement (social justice initiative of Hillsong Young and Free) was established in 2011 and is an inclusive, grassroots, student-led campaign platform. We encourage young people to use their voice, creativity and community to make a difference. So how can you get involved?

The String Movement is your story.

It is your platform to encourage your high school or your community to live Young and Free. We believe that every single young person deserves the right to live Young and Free – Free to enjoy their youth, free to get an education, free to dream and free to be themselves. Whether you’re a parent, school teacher or a student you can use ‘The String Movement’ as your vehicle to make a difference.
