Activate

Youth Scotland Activate is a new project funded by Scottish Children’s Lottery Funding – Chance to Connect fund.

Activate will use sport & physical activity as a tool to develop young people’s leadership and employability skills and gain qualifications.

Over a 6-12 month period, young people in disadvantaged communities or not in education or training will be supported through a youth work approach to:

  • create and complete personal learning plans identifying their individual needs and goals
  • complete a practical placements to enhance their CV
  • youth workers/volunteers will also be trained to develop their skills and confidence to support young people

The project will increase the number of young people from disadvantaged areas taking part in sport & physical activity and open new learning and progression pathways in physical activity and sports.
