The Young Reporters Scotland programme is supported in a variety of ways by different organisations:
Children’s University Scotland encourages children aged 5-14 to take part in exciting, fun, voluntary learning opportunities outside school hours. As Young Reporters Scotland is a validated learning activity, Children’s University members across Scotland can now collect 2 credits in their Passport to Learning for taking part and making their environmental report!
Young Reporters Scotland can be used to reach your bronze, silver or gold Duke of Edinburgh award. Download our handy support booklet for some great ideas, information and advice on how to make the most of Young Reporters Scotland as your skill, for volunteering or as part of your expedition aim.
Did you know you can get points by registering for Young Reporters Scotland competition through the Young Scot website? Every successful entry is eligible to receive 500 points! More information about the annual competition can be found here.
We have worked with Girlguiding Scotland to develop a badge for Rainbows, Brownies, Guides and Senior Section. The badge is designed to encourage and help members celebrate Scotland's natural beauty and develop Scotland's role in tackling environmental issues and encourage members of all ages to keep Scotland beautiful for current and future generations.
