Stripe was on hand to launch the latest addition to Young Scot’s award-winning Young Scot NEC card by switching on Young Scot Rewards, a brand new innovative online platform which encourages young people to participate in positive activities which benefit themselves and their communities.
Over 250 young people and stakeholders joined Minister for Children and Young People, Angela Constance MSP, at an interactive event hosted at Glasgow’s Old Fruitmarket as the Young Scot Rewards digital platform went live for the very first time.
Through Young Scot Rewards, young people will be able to earn points by taking part in a variety of positive activities offered by a range of cross sector partners. These include volunteering, contributing to consultations or participating in opportunities around sport, health, arts and the environment. They will then be able unlock achievements and access exclusive offers and special deals. These include the chance to shadow Michelin starred chef Andrew Fairlie at Gleneagles Hotel, get free driving lessons with BSM or even swim with sharks at Deep Sea World.
