Youth Participation

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


Keep It Real


The Keep It Real pack takes a practical approach to youth participation and provides a selection of activities, tried and tested by young people, which can be used separately or together as part of a training programme. 

Activities are designed to build young people's confidence, increase their involvement in decision making, suggest creative ways of sharing ideas and evaluate and recognise achievements.     

It a practical and informative toolkit to help establish activity and share best practise.
