#PowerOfYouth Day 2022

Get ready to celebrate the #PowerOfYouth!

Join us on the 6th June to say ‘Thank You’ to young people across Scotland!

#PowerOfYouth Day in Volunteers Week is an opportunity to shout about the incredible contributions that young people are making in their communities, society & the environment. It’s a chance to spotlight the achievements of children and young people in the #IWill movement and beyond, and to demonstrate your real commitment to empowering young people in your organisation. Throughout the day events and celebrations take place across UK and leaders, organisations & young people take to social media to celebrate the #PowerOfYouth, recognising the invaluable and diverse contribution they are making to society.  

How to get involved! 

Whether you are a young person or an organisation there are many ways for you to join in the celebrations this #PowerOfYouth Day. As an example you could:  

  • Use our social media graphics and template posts to spread the word about the #PowerOfYouth and spotlight a young person doing amazing work in your organisation or in your wider community. This could take the form of a video on TikTok, Instagram or YouTube. You could share blogs & case studies on your website and social channels recognising the role of young volunteers or you could even hand over the reins to your young people for the day and support them to take over your social media accounts. Be sure to tag @IWillScotland and use the hashtags #PowerOfYouth & #PowerOfYouthDay22. 
  • Power of Youth Day is a great opportunity to reflect on how your organisation can commit to embedding youth social action into its practice. Whether or not you’ve previously signed the charter, now is the time to come together and make those commitments. And once you’ve done this – tell us about it! Sign up to the #PowerOfYouth Charter and share your commitments via social media, tagging @IWillScotland and using the hashtags #PowerOfYouth & #PowerOfYouthDay22. You may even encourage your peers to do the same!
  • As we build our movement, we want to see organisations collaborating and sharing knowledge in order to provide the best possible opportunities for young people. This Power of Youth Day, why not share some organisations that do amazing work to enable youth social action for your young followers and your peers to see? We’re all championing the Power of Youth, so let’s lift each other up! Share 3 organisations that you think everyone should know about – template can be found in our comms assets.
