East Ayrshire Council

Activity Agreements are programmes of tailored learning and activity which support young people furthest from the labour market to prepare for formal learning, training and employment. They are delivered through local authority partnerships across all 32 local authority areas in Scotland.  Those involved in the planning and delivery of Activity Agreements recognise the benefits of volunteering for both the individual involved and the community and strive to offer meaningful volunteering opportunities for young people traditionally less likely to volunteer. Through these opportunities young people across Scotland are developing essential employability and  core skills and gaining experience of the world of work.

  • East Ayrshire Council pledges to continue to promote and increase awareness of the benefits of volunteering among 16-19 year olds participating in or progressing from an Activity Agreement.

Quote from Charlotte Hill, CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
Over 700 cross-sector organisations so far have pledged to support youth social action, and say #iwill. What will you do?”
