Here are the Powerpoint slides from Tuesday’s RenSEN session.
Our guest speakers were Kay McIntosh, Young Persons Guarantee (YPG) Programme and Emily Wallace, Corra Foundation.  Both Kay and Emily highlighted ways in which RenSEN members can get involved in these new initiatives.

What is the Young Persons Guarantee and how can Renfrewshire Employers Help

Participatory Scotland - An introduction


In the meantime, there are a few simple steps you can take to support to the Young Persons Guarantee in Renfrewshire:

Promote YPG – YPG aims to connect every 16 to 24 year old in Scotland to an opportunity which could be a job, apprenticeship, Further or Higher Education, training or volunteering.  Therefore, please use your networks to encourage young people to find out more about YPG and register their interest.

Want to advertise a volunteering opportunity? – Please remember to advertise your volunteering opportunities with Engage Renfrewshire.  Young people registered with YPG will have access to volunteering opportunities listed on the Engage Renfrewshire website.

Inspire Young People – Through YPG, there are opportunities to engage with schools in Renfrewshire and inspire young people to work in your sector.  If you would like to support YPG in this way, please contact the YPG Team here

Planning to advertise a job? – If you’re looking to recruit a young person, you can also advertise through YPG.  You can find more info here (including details of current recruitment initiatives).

‘Colabs’ and partners – If you’re looking to collaborate on a project idea or want to develop more formal partnerships, please let us know and we can help connect you to other local groups.

Facilities for hire – If you have meeting space available or offer room-hire, remember to advertise your space via the Engage Renfrewshire premises directory
