Michael Matheson MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Justice, visited young people in Highland to find out more about the Young People Take the Lead initiative which is funded by CashBack for Communities. The young people he met were part of the Youth Advisory Group in Highland and he participated in a creative consultation workshop, which focused on engaging and inspiring young people to take the lead in their own communities.
The session was filled with energisers, table discussions and exercises to explore why and how young people can take the lead in their groups, projects and organisations. During the session young people built the skills to become leaders and decision makers.
Young People Take the Lead is a partnership and you can find out more here.
