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.
- Dumfries & Galloway 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.
