Creating a more inclusive future for youth volunteering

Volunteer Scotland hosted this conference in Stirling on 25 Sept 2018.

The goal of the event was to develop a series of actions to engage more young people in volunteering, especially those subject to some form of exclusion, be that due to poverty, disability, mental and physical health, unemployment, etc. Working with four representatives from the Youth VIP Team and 20 partner organisations, the conference involved a mixture of presentations, workshops, an open space session and a youth panel.
