The Wood Foundation

Developing Young People in Scotland

Developing Young People in Scotland is one of the main UK programmes of The Wood Foundation.TWF's focus in the UK is to invest in the future of Scotland by ensuring we have a nation of enterprising young people who have an understanding of citizenship values and the role they can play regionally, nationally, and internationally.

We will invest in three specific areas;

  • Citizenship including Global Citizenship and encouraging philanthropy in young people
  • Enterprise Education
  • Enabling Positive Destinations into Employment, Education and Training

Our approach is to support strategic partners who can demonstrate their ability to deliver projects to scale and operate within our guiding principles, alongside programmes operationally managed by The Wood Foundation. Increasingly, we are engaging with projects which are designed and delivered through the Scottish education system.

Our programme activity is identified on a proactive basis, however TWF will accept applications from individuals and groups, local to the North East of Scotland, who are undertaking an overseas volunteering opportunity.
