Wanted: Young people to become Youth Legacy Ambassadors
Youth Scotland is working with Young Scot, the Scottish Government and other partner agencies to support a project aimed at involving young people in the Commonwealth Games legacy.
Young people, aged 14-21, have the opportunity to become Youth Legacy Ambassadors, helping to promote the key themes of an active, sustainable, connected and flourishing Scotland in their communities.
For a taster of what one of the Youth Legacy Ambassadors has already been up to - view their interview with Olympic legend Sebastian Coe here.
The Youth Legacy Ambassadors will have a huge part to play in making sure everyone in Scotland gets the most out of hosting the Commonwealth Games and other major events such as International Children's Games 2011 and London 2012.
They will be encouraged to work creatively and imaginatively, with comprehensive training and support, to develop their own skills and knowledge. Youth Legacy Ambassadors will work with other organisations to ensure young people have a voice and can influence how the games will benefit their communities.
The sorts of things Youth Legacy Ambassadors will get involved in might include creating online articles, podcasts, blogs and videos, attending events and helping everyone in Scotland get involved in Legacy themed activities.
