Youth Participation Project 

Youth Scotland is supporting young people to participate in decision making processes and in the management and leadership of their groups and communities. 


Youth Scotland believes youth participation is essential to quality youth work.  We encourage involving young people in decision making, supporting youth action and developing essential life skills for leadership.  Youth participation forms the foundation blocks for Youth Scotland’s projects and programmes, and we encourage our members and partners to build strong involvement routes for young people at every level.
