Scotland’s first ever Year of Young People is happening in 2018.

As part of its themed years programme, the Scottish Government has made 2018 the Year of Young People.

A global first, the Year of Young People 2018 will provide a platform to showcase the personalities, talents and achievements of Scotland’s young people.

It will give young people, aged 8 to 26, new opportunities to influence decision making on issues affecting their lives and be involved in cultural and sporting opportunities across the country.

Young people have been involved in designing the programme, with more than 500 signed up to volunteer as Year of Young People 2018 Ambassadors.

The Scottish Government's Year of Young People website is available here.

The Church of Scotland's Year of Young People area is here.

The young people of St Michael's organised a concert by Big Noise Raploch and The Linlithgow Linties in May and what a great evening it was. We have added some photos from the evening to our carousel above.
