Action for Change is launching in Scotland in 2016 and this is your chance to get involved!
What is Action for Change?
Action for Change is an exciting new opportunity for you to get the skills and know-how and be inspired to make change in your own unique way on things you really care about. Join Action for Change in Scotland and be part of something amazing.
Whether it’s organising a community event, starting a petition to your Head Teacher, tackling bullying or discrimination you see around you, doing a big fundraiser for a good cause, or something completely different, Action for Change will help you to take the next step and make it happen.
Calling all young members!
You don’t need to have any particular skills, experience or to have done anything similar before to get involved – you just need to be ready to get stuck in!
We’re looking for 40- 50 young members who are:
- aged 13-18
- prepared to commit to the project for a full year
- excited and ready to make change happen!

Your Action for Change journey
Your year in Action for Change will start at an exciting residential weekend in Edinburgh with other young members from across Scotland, where you’ll be talking ideas and inspiration and get help to start planning the difference you want to make.
A network of amazing girls
You’ll stay connected to the friends you make through the Action for Change network in Scotland so you can carry on sharing ideas and working on projects and campaigns together.
You’ll get individual support from a skilled Network Coordinator who can help you to develop your plan, problem solve and find ways to make things happen.
You’ll get sent loads of exciting news and actions and play a key role in shaping campaigns to make girls’ lives better. And you’ll get help to package it all up to look fantastic on your CV, and get a badge at the end, of course!
