What We Do

Preparing youngsters
for the future

Vision & Mission

Our vision is that all young people in Scotland achieve their personal best in life

Our mission is to create a culture that instils resilience, self-belief, determination and raises attainment and confidence. We work with partners across education, communities and sport to provide opportunities for young people to learn these crucial skills and competencies.

Working With Partners

Creating strength and support by working with others

We work with a range of partners who help us to deliver our aims and objectives and collaborate with us on
common goals. Without our partners, much of our work would be a lot harder to achieve. Our partners include:
sportscotland ~ Scottish Government ~ local education authorities ~ housing associations 
~ sports bodies and organisations ~ businesses

Does your organisation have similar interests and aims?

If your organisation, charity or other body has similar aims and ambitions to ourselves about developing young people then we would be interested in hearing from you. We are happy to share what we do and learn from others so that we can become better at giving all youngsters in Scotland the opportunity to be the best they can be.
