What's the Challenge?
Too much month at the end of your money? Young Scot has teamed up with the Carnegie UK Trust and is looking to work with a group of 12 young people from across Scotland, aged 16-24, between September and December to look at how young people think about and use credit*.
How do you deal with savings and debt? This could be anything from a store card, credit card and overdrafts to loans and phone contracts. Is this something you would talk about with family and friends?
Grab the opportunity to help shape policy, services and decision making across Scotland, creatively challenging people’s attitudes and develop and test out new ideas, while allowing you to develop innovative and essential skills.
*If you buy goods or services on credit, it means that someone like a bank or other lender has given you the money to pay for something that you need to pay back at a later date.
What's in it for me?
The chance to challenge yourself to be innovative and creative, making your CV stand out from the crowd through:
- Developing your skills - listening, communicating, presenting, team work, designing, prototyping, digital and social media…
- Increasing your confidence, be empowered and challenge the people at the top!
- Meeting other people from across Scotland and work as a team
- Oh and we’ll be covering all your travel, food & accommodation costs over the project!
“Do it. 100% get involved. It's a great experience that you'll absolutely love. There are so many opportunities available that will help you later in life. Just get that foot in the door.”
