In partnership with the Scottish Government and Children in Scotland, Young Scot has launched ‘ActivateYourRights’ – a pack of resources that will help children and young people understand and protect their rights.
The young volunteers created the ActivateYourRights Facilitator Pack that will prepare nursery, primary, and secondary school teachers, youth workers, and other educators ahead of the historic legislation. They also created ActivateYourRights resources for other young people to access directly in their own time online.
The activities and interactive workshops in the new ActivateYourRights Facilitator Pack will help educators to support children and young people to learn to identify their rights and recognise when they are being upheld – while encouraging them to defend their rights and ask for support to ensure they are recognised.
Educators can access the ActivateYourRights Facilitator Pack on youngscot.net. There’s also articles, videos, podcasts, and quizzes for young people in the ActivateYourRights section of young.scot for young people. The resources translate the UNCRC into everyday examples of rights being upheld.
