Aims & objectives

Young Scot is the national youth information and citizenship charity for 11-26 year olds in Scotland. We provide young people with information, ideas and opportunities to help them make informed decisions and choices, helping them to navigate the challenges they face as they grow up, particularly during times of transition. We are collaborative in our approach, working with cross-sector partners who share our values and belief in young people. The joined-up approach ensures we deliver the best value, including targeted services where appropriate, whilst meeting the needs of the young people we serve. To achieve this vision we focus on three stretch goals - Inform, Connect and Empower.
