Get involved and represent the YoYP 2018 in your local community!

What's the challenge?

Children in Scotland, Scottish Youth Parliament, and Young Scot are looking for committed and passionate young people from across Scotland to become the Year of Young People 2018 Ambassadors. Get involved, and represent the YoYP 2018 in your local community!

As a YoYP 2018 Ambassador you would be involved in making sure that young people and organisations in your community know about YoYP 2018 activities, and together with other Ambassadors, you will lead on projects and activity within your area to create new opportunities for young people to shine locally, nationally and globally!

What's in it for you?

Making voices of young people in your community heard! The chance to challenge yourself to be innovative and creative (making your CV stand out from the crowd) through:

  • Developing your skills - listening, communicating, presenting, team work, designing, event organising, time management, leadership, digital and social media…
  • Attending national events and training with other Ambassadors from all over Scotland
  • Increasing your confidence - be empowered and challenge the people at the top!
  • Making new friends and working as a team
  • Taking part in a Dynamic Youth Award or Youth Achievement Award
  • Oh and we’ll be covering all your travel, food & accommodation costs over the project!
