Speak Out

Speak Out is Girlguiding Scotland’s youth voice, influencing the direction of our advocacy work and making sure girls views are heard. It was launched in 2018 as part of the Year of Young People and gives girls a platform to use their voices and seek change at the highest levels.

Scottish Youth Parliament

We want all young people to get engaged with the democratic process and be empowered to speak out about issues they care about. We have two representatives on the Scottish Youth Parliament, also known as MSYPs.
