Argyll and Bute Third Sector Interface (TSI) is encouraging people to help develop a young person’s life chances.

The TSI has joined forces with Argyll and Bute Council to promote the Young Person’s Guarantee, a Scottish Government initiative aimed at giving all young people in Scotland the chance to succeed despite the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

While delivering the volunteering part of the programme, it is looking for organisations to give young people career experience via volunteering opportunities to improve their prospects as well as partners who will refer young people to the programme.

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

‘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.’
