East Ayrshire's Year of Young People 2018


East Ayrshire’s young people are going to shine in 2018

The Year of Young People 2018 is an opportunity to celebrate the amazing achievements and contributions of our young people. 

We have worked with young people to co-design our Year of Young People programme. A high impact, celebratory events programme, with young people at the heart of development and delivery will create new and valuable experiences for East Ayrshire's young people, families and visitors.

All ages can join in the events and activities across culture, art, sport and more.

Colour run

Kicking off the year, there will be an explosion of colour to celebrate the launch of the year at the Howard Park, Kilmarnock on Thursday 15 February from 4pm to 6pm with a colour run. So grab your old clothes and come down for some fun on the day.

Participatory budgeting

The young person's Participatory Budgeting (PB) gives an opportunity to decide where public money is spent. Young people can apply for funding for events and projects in their community, who then vote on which projects should receive an award. Applications are open for this right now and close on 15 February 2018. More information and guidance can be found on our Participatory Budgeting page.
