Young Enterprise Scotland is a registered charity that has been working to inspire and equip young people to learn and succeed through enterprise in Scotland for over 40 years. Our history is proudly linked with Junior Achievement Worldwide and we achieved independent Scottish Charity status in 1991.
In our early years as an independent charity we worked with around 4000 students which has grown steadily over the years to over 10,000 annually. We now run a variety of inspiring enterprise and entrepreneurship programmes for young people aged 5 to 30 across primary, secondary and tertiary educations as well as in prisons, secure and residential units and with community groups. Our team of passionate staff and hugely committed volunteers work hard to support the young people Young Enterprise Scotland engages with to reach their full potential.
