Voluntary youth work organisations are key players supporting and
developing young people across Scotland. During the covid-19 crisis the sector has had to adapt to maintain
services and support for young people. It has been a period of constant change
and transition and one in which leader have been required to step up.

from across Scotland to gain greater
confidence and clarity to enable you to progress in your leadership journey.
This programme is delivered as a blend of
online participative sessions and self-directed learning. You will work closely
with your peers throughout and build a strong supportive network.
