Our mission is to empower all young people in Scotland to be ambitious, versatile and resilient. Whatever the circumstances, we want them to be full of confidence and prepared for the future. Our approaches are based on robust evidence, developed to be effective in settings where children spend their time – like education, communities and sport.
Young people in Scotland deserve the best chance at achieving success in life. Being confident and resilient will set them on their way, whatever life throws at them.
We identify how to help children and young people by working with our partners. We collaborate to investigate, research and develop solutions that will work for young people in their own contexts – whether it’s at home, school or in the community.
We’re willing to take risks along the way. We love a ‘big idea’ and, if we believe it can work, we will find a way to make it happen.
Since 2005, we’ve been developing confidence and resilience in young people through a range of approaches:
creating a positive learning environment for children by working with teachers, families, coaches and community leaders.
developing new techniques to empower young people with a growth mindset at home, in school, sport and communities.
increasing the health, wellbeing, education and employment prospects of Scotland’s young people.
partnering with local authorities, national agencies, businesses and charities to maximise our impact.
