Get involved

2018 is fast approaching – what are you going to do to be part of Scotland’s first Year of Young People?

Plans are underway to make sure Scotland’s young people take centre stage. And this section will give you the tools and resources to help get you ready.

Keen an eye out on this page as it will be updated closer to 2018.

Co-design Blueprint

Children in Scotland, Scottish Youth Parliament and Young Scot are providing support to organisations to co-design their activity with young people.

Here’s a handy Co-design Blueprint to help get you started.

Become an ambassador

We are looking for young people to become ambassadors to represent the Year of Young People 2018.

As an ambassador, you will be given training and help to:

  • Support events within your local authority, voluntary sector and youth work teams
  • Promote the Year of Young People 2018 themes and activities in your area
  • Get people involved in the activities – nationally and locally
  • Record your activities using blogs, vlogs and social media
  • Work towards a Youth Achievement Award or Dynamic Youth Award
