Ever since 2013 when Scot­land’s for­mer First Min­is­ter Alex Sal­mond an­nounced that 2018 would be the Year of Young Peo­ple, there has been a re­newed en­thu­si­asm for cel­e­brat­ing and pro­mot­ing young peo­ples’ role in cul­ture, ed­u­ca­tion, busi­ness and well­be­ing. Year of Young Peo­ple 2018 aims to in­spire Scot­land through its young peo­ple, cel­e­brat­ing their achieve­ments, valu­ing their con­tri­bu­tion to com­mu­ni­ties and cre­at­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties for them to shine lo­cally, na­tion­ally and glob­ally. Tak­ing these val­ues aboard, or­gan­i­sa­tions on Ar­ran have long cham­pi­oned the cause of young peo­ple and in­volved them in the heart of ev­ery­thing that they do.
