Young Scot is the national information and citizenship organisation supported by the Scottish Government for young people aged 11-26 in Scotland.[1]

The declared aim of the organization is to make young people informed, incentivised and active citizens through the information they provide.[2]

Young Scot also provide opportunities for young people across Scotland in order to help develop their educational and professional development. One example of this would be the Youth Commission on Alcohol.

The organisation issues the Young Scot National Entitlement Card to young people aged 11-26. This provides cardholders with discounts for goods and services across Scotland and certain European countries. As well as being part of the National Entitlement Card Programme that runs in Scotland [3] it is also a proof of age card accredited by the Proof of Age Standards Scheme (PASS) scheme which applies across the United Kingdom.

Young Scot also have a rewards scheme where users can earn reward points and then in turn collect rewards.[4]
