#iwill in Scotland

 

We're a strategic partner for #iwill in Scotland, leading the campaign with Young Scot and Education Scotland.

We'd like to you join us in making a pledge to be part of #iwill.

The power of youth social action

This UK-wide campaign aims to encourage and empower more young people to make a difference to their community and to causes they care about through activities such as volunteering, fundraising, campaigning and mentoring. Young people in Scotland are leading the way and are already making a significant impact, but there’s more we can do.

Get your organisation involved

What could your organisation do to contribute to increasing the number of young people getting involved? How can you widen opportunities so that more young people can make a difference?

Examples of things you can pledge to support #iwill include:

  • Committing to recruiting a young person to your charities Board of Trustees
  • Promoting and celebrating the positive role young people can play through social action
