Youth groups

Does your youth group have a project idea that you want to see become a reality? We’d love to support you in making it happen!

From skate parks to Minecraft cathedrals, from your local cinema to the street where you live, we support youth groups in exploring the places that matter to them. Here at Scotland’s Urban Past (SUP), we can help young people discover the hidden stories of everyday places and share those stories in new, creative ways.

Can I be involved?

Your youth group

Do you represent a youth group or youth club?

If you are between 16 and 25, you could join the SUP Youth Forum.

Youth Projects

Is your project idea based on a Scottish town or city with a population over 3,000? SUP can help you.

Check our map of all eligible project locations.

Skills for life

Want to develop skills for life and work?

We can support your youth group in gaining valuable experience, training and completing award schemes.
