Partnered by The Outward Bound Trust

The young people who take part in the Award only pay a nominal fee for the experience. We do this so that financial disadvantage is not a barrier to participation. This is only possible because all other costs related to the Award are met by our generous donors. We are incredibly grateful for their support, as without them the Award would not be possible.

There are many ways to support the Award, but these are perhaps the most common:

Corporate support

Committing to support the Award enables your company to give back to communities across the central belt of Scotland. Over 150 young people every year from 70 schools need financial support to take part in the Award. If you'd like to discuss a strategic partnership / sponsorship of the Award please get in touch.

Are you an Award alumni?

We'd love to hear from you. Over 3,500 young people have completed the programme. Since 2012 we have focussed on measuring the long term impact of the programme and we’d like to hear your Mark Scott Leadership for Life Award Story. In our 25th year we have some special opportunities for people who have participated in the programme to celebrate this anniversary milestone.
