YouthBank Scotland is an innovative and empowerment initiative run by young people for young people.
YouthBank Scotland builds on young people’s skills and experiences to enable them to give cash for action, funding young people’s ideas for the benefit of the wider community.
Through support for YouthBanks across Scotland, provision of training for young people and those who engage young people, YouthBank Scotland’s mission is to:
A YouthBank is a youth-led group that sets up and distributes a grant fund to other young people to improve their local communities. Each YouthBank is set up to suit its communities needs so while they are all based on the same values they look different.
YBS does not have a grant pot, each individual YouthBank has their own funding source to distribute.
