Young Enterprise Scotland

Charity registered in Scotland SC018180

Young Enterprise Scotland has been inspiring & equipping young people to learn, develop and reach their full potential through enterprise since 1992. Every year we support around 16,000 young people, from all backgrounds, to develop business knowledge, entrepreneurial skills & ultimately become more employable. We aim to:

Enhance entrepreneurial attitudes of young people in Scotland;
Improve the enterprise skills of young people in Scotland;
Strengthen the work readiness of Scotland’s young people.

Our dedicated team are supported by over 500 volunteers from the Scottish business community to help realise our vision for Scotland to be a place where all young people have the opportunity to experience a rewarding future in work/life - no matter where they start their journey. We believe passionately in ’Enterprise for All’ and deliver a wide range of programmes to ensure our work can reach ALL young people.

Current opportunity

Volunteers maintain our poly tunnels, greenhouses, grass areas and planters throughout the site. Our garden volunteers can get involved with light gardening duties (weeding, planting, watering etc) or for the more physically able – digging, shifting, moving and clearing. Basic knowledge of gardening and being able to work on own initiative is essential. We have no minimum time that volunteers are expected to volunteer, what time you can give is greatly appreciated.
