Saltire Awards are the new Scottish awards designed to formally recognise the commitment and contribution of youth volunteering to voluntary organisations.
Supported by the Scottish Government the Saltire Awards enable young volunteers to record the skills, experience and learning gained through successful volunteering placements provided by local and national voluntary agencies.
The Awards are split in to four sections – The Challenge, The Approach, The Ascent and The Summit and achievement is recognised in the form of Saltire Award certificates and Young Scot reward points.
As part of the Positive Life Pathways project, the Highland Wildcats work with the Saltire Awards scheme by providing and mentoring young people in voluntary roles and help them to not only build up volunteering hours but also log and monitor their experiences.
Saltire Awards are designed to formally recognise the commitment and contribution of young people volunteering in Scotland. The Saltire Awards enable volunteers between the ages of 12 & 25 to gain new skills and practical experience through volunteering placements provided by local and national voluntary agencies.
