Youth Scotland’s CashBack for Communities Reach 2018 event

1st June 2018

Reach 2018 was an event co-designed and delivered with young people from a consortium of Scouts Scotland, Girlguiding Scotland, Boys Brigade and Youth Scotland.

“It made me think about skills I need, like communications skills are a big factor. It’s good for people to get out and know each other rather than staying in the same organisation.” 

Young people from across Scotland and four youth organisations came together to participate in a co-designed and delivered youth event funded by CashBack for Communities in March.

Organised by an advisory group of young leaders from Scouts Scotland, Girlguiding Scotland, Boys Brigade and Youth Scotland, the day was a huge success. You can read the story of the day in young people’s own words below!
