Join us on 6th June to say ‘Thank You’ to young people across Scotland!

#PowerOfYouth Day in Volunteers Week is an opportunity to shout about the incredible contributions that young people are making in their communities, society and the environment. Throughout the day events and celebrations take place across Scotland and leaders, organisations and young people take to social media to celebrate the #PowerOfYouth, recognising the invaluable and diverse contribution that they are making to society.

Here you can find all the information you need to help you plan your #PowerOfYouth Day 2022 celebrations.

If you have any requests for comms materials or you have content that we can share and amplify on our IWill Scotland social media accounts please get in touch with us and make sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram.

Applications for our next cohort of #IWill Ambassadors are now open!

We're looking for changemakers, trailblazers and community heroes from across Scotland to join the #IWill movement as an Ambassador! If you know a young person aged 12-25 who is making a positive difference to their community in any way, we'd love to hear from them.

#IWill is a fast growing movement of young people leading change through social action. We envision a society that understands and champions the #PowerOfYouth, where all young people are equipped and enabled to shape and lead change in their own lives and communities. As such, we welcome young people from all backgrounds and at any stage in their social action journey.

If you know a young person who would like to join this exciting network of young activists and changemakers you can find all the information you need here.

Applications close at 11:59 on 3rd July 2022
