Perhaps a young person helped resolve an issue or taught you things you previously did not know (this could be related to technology, perspectives and/or different ways of life). Perhaps you know of a young person who is on the road to reaching their full potential despite facing adversity or challenges?
Other points to highlight may include how hiring young people has benefitted your business or organisation from a general or financial point of view, and what advice you would give to employers who are unsure about hiring young people.
We want to hear all your stories about why young people are great, whether taking inspiration from the points above, or simply celebrating and giving recognition to the hard work of young people within your business or organisation.
Before posting content on social media, please discuss the campaign with young people within your business or organisation to ensure they provide consent.
You can get involved by posting stories of young people within your business or organisation via Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn on Tuesday 6th June 2023. Make sure you use the hashtag #YPAG23, and tag the official DYW Scotland account on Twitter (@DYWScot) and Instagram (@dyw_scot). If using Facebook, please tag your local regional group’s page. For more information, content inspiration, and visuals to promote your involvement in the campaign, please download the campaign pack.
We look forward to showing Scotland’s employers why young people are great! Here are some tweets from last year:
