Exciting opportunity for young women in Scotland
Young Scot has an exciting opportunity for young women aged between 18-23 (as of May 31st, 2018!) The First Mentor Initiative gives a young woman the chance to be mentored by the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon!
Mentoring is a powerful way of helping young women achieve their goals and will help to create a new generation of positive role models to inspire other young women.
If you are or know a young woman, aged between 18-23, who is bold, brilliant and courageous about the future, Young Scot wants to hear from you. The deadline is the 31st May 2018.
Applications can be completed at young.scot/firstmentor
