Youth Scotland’s Awards: Supporting young people to achieve their potential — their stories

Youth Scotland believes every young person has potential and high quality youth work helps them to achieve their full potential. For over 15 years, our Dynamic Youth and Youth Achievement Awards have recognised and accredited the fantastic achievements of young people all over Scotland.

Young people have incredible stories to share of how completing their award has made a real difference in their lives, from making friends and enjoying new challenges and experiences to developing new skills.

You can see more of our young people's Awards stories on our YouTube channel here

This collection of case studies shares only a handful of these stories but we hope you will see the tremendous value which young people place on their achievements and awards.

You will also hear from individuals who support young people to complete their awards and I want to thank them and all our partners for the work they do.

Together we have come far but Youth Scotland wants every young person to have the opportunity to achieve our awards. We would encourage our partners and members to think about how they could work with Youth Scotland to recognise and accredit the achievements of young people you are working with.
