Organisations are being sought which can offering volunteering experience for young people to help them improve their career prospects.

Argyll and Bute Third Sector Interface (TSI), in conjunction with Argyll and Bute Council, is looking for partner organisations as part of the Young Person’s Guarantee programme.

Backed by a £60 million Scottish Government investment, the guarantee aims to
give all young people in Scotland the chance to succeed despite the economic
impacts of coronavirus (Covid-19).

Partners willing to refer young people to the programme are also being sought.

Takki Sulaiman, CEO of Argyll and Bute TSI, said: ‘The Young People’s Guarantee will help give a young person a great start to their career by offering quality supported volunteering opportunities.

‘Charities and local groups can help as they are closest to the volunteering opportunities in our communities.

‘Grants may be available to support placements and young people will receive support from coaches.

‘Register your interest today and we will work together to help keep our communities
strong.’
