Operation Youth Advantage Plus is a multi-agency led programme aimed at crime-vulnerable youth and is currently building a team of Buddies across Scotland. Each Buddy is paired with a young person to help them to maximise their potential, rise above the challenging aspects of society and attain education, training and employment.
Buddies have a wide range of life experiences and have the ability to encourage and guide young people along the path of employability and stability. Buddies meet with a young person for an hour or two each month to ensure they are on track to achieve their goals.
This is an excellent opportunity for community engagement and would be of interest to those who would like to help shape the future of Scotland. Becoming a Buddy with OYA+ would increase career prospects and provide valuable experience of working with young people. Buddies would also have the opportunity to obtain a free qualification in Coaching Skills.
