About the Event

#YSHive is working with The Scottish Government to run this one day digital jam event for young people to influence the Young People’s Guarantee.

"We will guarantee to every young person aged between 16 and 24 in Scotland the opportunity, based on their own personal circumstances and ambitions, of going to university or college, an apprenticeship programme, training, fair employment including work experience, or participating in a formal volunteering programme." The Young People’s Guarantee

It is vital that young people are involved in designing how the Young People’s Guarantee will work in a way that is representative, inclusive and most importantly, meets the needs of Scotland’s young people. 

Anyone in the age range can attend, and we welcome a mix of experience and knowledge of welfare, employment, employability, and skills. We are happy to make reasonable adjustments based on your needs to enable you to attend. We are particularly interested to collaborate with young people who are more at risk of experiencing barriers due to their personal circumstances including BAME young  people, disabled young people, young women, young carers, care-experienced young people, and young people who live in low income households.

This interactive workshop will take you through the #YSHive Process in one day to design a young people’s journey map:

  • EXPLORE: Share your own experiences, including barriers and opportunities to accessing education, employment, training and skills opportunities due to COVID-19. Discover information from key experts and ask questions. Identify what young people need, particularly considering those who are more at risk of experiencing barriers due to their personal circumstances.
  • CREATE: Work together in teams with other young people, supported by Young Scot staff, to create a series of ideas for a young people’s journey map.
  • DISRUPT: Develop your priority ideas with support from Young Scot staff.
  • ACT: Share back your ideas for The Scottish Government and a new Young People’s Guarantee Leadership Panel to consider.

 

This digital workshop will be hosted by Young Scot staff. Notes will be taken, and a report will be provided to The Scottish Government with the findings from this event. We will share feedback after the event and next steps as a result of your influence.

We will be recruiting volunteers for the Young People’s Guarantee Leadership Panel on Young Scot Hive soon!

You will receive 250 Young Scot Rewards points for attending this event.
