Youth Action Group


The search is on for our first ever Youth Action Group – could it be you?

respectme is looking to form a Youth Action Group who will inform our next national anti-bullying campaign to run from 2022-2024.

The Youth Action Group will bring together a team of like-minded young people aged 11-18 who will help shape the development of our up and coming anti-bullying campaign. Together we will discuss the main issues facing young people in relation to bullying right now, and co-design a national campaign which aims to improve the lives of young people in Scotland.

What will the new Youth Action Group do?

Over several online sessions with the respectme team, the Youth Action Group will work as anti-bullying ambassadors throughout the 2022-2024 campaign, working across three main campaign phases:

  • Pre-Anti-Bullying Week 2022: Campaign development (February 2022 – August 2022)
  • Post-Anti-Bullying Week 2022: Evaluation and development for Year 2 (February 2023 – June 2023)
  • Post Anti-Bullying Week 2023: (December 2023 – January 2024)

What will you gain as a Youth Action Group Community Ambassador?

  • Practical skills and experience in creating a new digital campaign from the ground up, including its planning and execution
  • Opportunity to make a positive and lasting difference to the experiences of young people in your local area and across Scotland
  • Networking with like-minded young people and the national respectme team
  • Increased confidence and leadership skills

Who are we looking for?

  • Young people aged 11-18
  • From a variety of locations and backgrounds from across Scotland
  • Willing to talk about the reality of bullying from your own perspective
  • Experience of bullying welcome, but not essential, nor is it essential to share details of your own experiences
  • Able to listen to others and engage in thought-provoking online discussions
  • Happy to think creatively about new approaches to anti-bullying work
  • Committed to continuing to work as Youth Action Group Community Ambassadors throughout 2022-2024
