The information section of the Young Scot website provides lots of useful info on a range of topics from young people's rights & the law to health & relationships.

It is their aim that the information they provide will enable young people to:

  • Make informed decisions and choices.
  • Turn their ideas into action.
  • Take advantage of the opportunities available to them in Scotland and the rest of Europe.
  • Have the confidence and knowledge to take their place as active citizens in their communities- locally, nationally and globally.
