Our mission is to create a culture that instils resilience, self-belief, determination and raises attainment and confidence. We work with partners across education, communities and sport to provide opportunities for young people to learn these crucial skills and competencies.

with local authorities, national agencies, businesses and charities to maximise our impact.
Our programmes focus on engaging with young people at all stages of their development, from 0-18 years old (along with parents, teachers, coaches and leaders) so that they can learn crucial life skills and competencies to be well-prepared for their lives ahead of them.
We've see that by working with local partners in local communities, we can make a real difference to young people. For example, by working with parents of pre-school children or engaging a community with physical activity.
We work with a range of partners who help us to deliver our aims and objectives and collaborate with us on
common goals. Without our partners, much of our work would be a lot harder to achieve. Our partners include:
sportscotland ~ Scottish Government ~ local education authorities ~ housing associations
~ sports bodies and organisations ~ businesses
If your organisation, charity or other body has similar aims and ambitions to ourselves about developing young people then we would be interested in hearing from you. We are happy to share what we do and learn from others so that we can become better at giving all youngsters in Scotland the opportunity to be the best they can be.
