About the event

The Youth Volunteering Legacy Group is hosting the #YouthVIP Summit: How Can Schools Support Youth Volunteering? It will be a space for organisations to listen to young people on their volunteering experiences, but this event will focus especially on volunteering opportunities accessed in schools. 

We’re inviting young people to come along to this event to have their voices heard on volunteering within Scotland and what needs to change!

The summit will be an opportunity for young people to get to know staff from various youth and voluntary organisations, get involved in collaborative activities and hear about the volunteering journeys and experiences of young people.  

By attending the event, you will contribute to creating change within voluntary organisations, pushing the sector to do better.  

About the Youth Volunteering Legacy Group

The Youth Volunteering Legacy Group was set up as a lead from the Youth Volunteering Innovation Project (Youth VIP) back in 2018. The twenty-four young people in the group are overseeing some of the Youth VIP’s thirteen recommendations – with the Volunteering Summit being one of them!  

The group has been meeting regularly to plan and co-design the summit with both Young Scot and YouthLink Scotland. They are hoping to improve volunteering for young people in Scotland and support voluntary organisations in creating better opportunities.  

What will you get from attending?  

You will have the chance to meet like-minded people and develop friendships with young people across Scotland. You will also learn more about the voluntary sector, meet representatives from various voluntary organisations and learn about the different opportunities out there! 

We will provide out-of-school letters for you to attend this event, as well as a £10 Love2shop voucher.
