Meet the Creator Collective

Find out more about our Creator Collective and how to get involved.

As part of the Creator Collective, you’ll get to make informative and inspiring content for Young Scot’s social media channels as well as your own. You’ll also get access to loads of exciting development opportunities, including:

Access to resources and equipment

You’ll get to use tech and gear to make your content shine. You’ll have everything you need to experiment with new techniques and bring your ideas to life in ways you never thought possible.

Creator Hubs

These sessions will help you to upskill as a content creator. You’ll learn everything you need to know about script writing, filming and editing, personal branding, marketing, and more from our dedicated team and other experts. You’ll also get to connect with other organisations, so you can build your network and maybe even score your next big gig.

Support from Young Scot

You’ll be able to work with Young Scot’s experienced staff who will offer you guidance. They’ll help you hone your skills, give you feedback on your work, and help you set goals and achieve them.

Networking

You’ll have the chance to meet and collaborate with other young content creators from across Scotland. You’ll be part of a community that’s passionate about creating amazing content, and you’ll make new friends and valuable contacts along the way.

What are we looking for?

In your first six months we’ll ask you to create a minimum of three pieces of content. This will be:

  • One short piece of content, all about you, within your first month of joining (but don’t worry, we’ll give you a brief to help you get started).
  • At least two more pieces of content over the following five months.

If you’re feeling inspired and want to create even more, we’ll help you explore your personal passions and share them with young people across Scotland.

Whether it’s a vlog, podcast, video series, or something totally different, we want to see what you’re passionate about!

Your participation in the group will be unpaid, but we are dedicated to supporting you, developing your skills and helping to grow your network. We believe in recognising and rewarding your talent, which is why, as part of the Creator Collective, you’ll also get opportunities to join paid projects and campaigns. Plus, we’ll cover your travel expenses for the Creator Hub masterclasses.

Sound up your street? This project runs all year round, so you can join at any time! Email contents@young.scot for more information.

@young.scot Meet the Young Scot Creator Collective! They’re passionate about social media and will be making content about topics that are relevant to you. Stay tuned to see what they get up to! #CreatorCollective #YoungScot #Scotland #ContentCreation ♬ Cute bright hip hop(1018707) – hope music

We’ve already worked with content creators from across Scotland to spread awareness on a range of topics such as scams, managing your money, mental health and endometriosis. Check out some of the videos below and get inspired for what you could do as part of the Creator Collective.

@young.scot @Alastair, @Talesbyjosh and @Greg_the_PostGrad from our Creator Collective got together to open up and talk about things which have helped them when they’ve struggled with their mental health. It’s really important to reach out to someone when we’re struggling! On young.scot/AyeFeel we have lots of information about organisations that are there to help and offer support. #AyeFeel #MentalHealth #YoungScot #Scotland ♬ Relaxing Lofi beat(879424) – Ryo M.
@young.scot @Iona Clancy and @shiona from our Creator Collective talked through the different ways they might support a friend who had reached out asking for help with their mental health. As part of their conversation they spoke about the importance of signposting a friend to official support channels if you don’t have the knowledge or capacity to give a friend the support yourself. One of those places could be young.scot/AyeFeel where you’ll find lots of information and resources. #AyeFeel #MentalHealth #YoungScot #Scotland ♬ original sound – Young Scot
@katyjjo Endometriosis Action Month 💛 Delighted to help @youngscot raise endometriosis awareness this March (and every day)! This is my honest account of what it’s like living with an ‘invisible illness’. If you’re in the same boat, or know someone who is, I hope it helps! You got this 🤝 Watch to the end to see me spilling the tea (literally) on life with endo! ☕️😆 Make sure you check out the resources on Young Scot’s website and over the coming weeks to follow the real stories of young people living with the condition in Scotland! #EndometriosisAwareness #1in10 #Endo #EndometriosisAwarenessMonth ♬ original sound – Katy J
@oiseanlauren AD @Young Scot’s #AyeFeel campaign supports young people’s mental health and well-being.
