Young Scot is the national information and citizenship organisation supported by the Scottish Government for young people aged 11-26 in Scotland.
Young Scot also provide opportunities for young people across Scotland in order to help develop their educational and professional development.
We have formed a Young Scot ambassador group in the school - they will be working hard over the next few weeks to share the benefits of Young Scot with us all.
The organisation issues the Young Scot National Entitlement Card to young people aged 11-26. This provides cardholders with discounts for goods and services across Scotland and certain European countries. As well as being part of the National Entitlement Card Programme that runs in Scotland it is also a proof of age card. Find out more
Young Scot also have a rewards scheme where users can earn reward points and then in turn collect rewards. Find out more

Applications are now open. For more information and to apply for the card, visit the Young person's free bus travel scheme website. (If you are under 16 your parent/carer must apply for you - we have emailed all parents and carers about this).
