LGBT Youth Scotland is a national youth organisation working towards the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people in the life of Scotland.

Our vision is that every LGBT young person will be:

  • able to grow up happy and healthy
  • supported by their communities
  • able to reach their full potential
  • included in the life of Scotland

You can help us to achieve our vision by donating your time, energy and skills as a volunteer.

Perhaps you can see yourself carrying out direct work, such as helping run youth groups and working face-to-face with young people, or by supporting our delivery of workshops in schools?

Or maybe your talents could be used in our policy work, helping to influence key decision makers and ensuring that LGBT young people’s voices can be clearly heard?

Or it could be that you can help us improve the lives and futures of LGBT young people in one of many other ways such as delivering training (both internally and externally), providing vital admin support, maximising our organisational potential as part of our fundraising team, planning and running successful events and much, much more. There are many roles for volunteers at LGBT Youth Scotland, and every single volunteer has an important part to play.

In return, you can expect a challenging and rewarding role, high-quality ongoing training and skills development on a range of topics, regular support and plenty of fun, laughter, respect and appreciation.

We are committed to promoting human rights and the dignity of each human being, including equality of opportunity regardless of sexual orientation, gender or transgender identity, age, race, disability, religion or belief and socio-economic status. We work to ensure that our services are accessible and young people’s experience and outcomes are positive and that there is an inclusive working environment for all staff and volunteers.
