ages 13+

Celebrating and recognising the volunteering achievements of young people in Scotland


What is it?

3Theatre  celebrate, recognise and reward the commitment, contribution and achievements of our young volunteers, aged between 13 and 25.

Young people gain nationally recognised certificates, signed by Scottish Government Ministers, for the different amounts of volunteering they do.

We aim to help young volunteers to reflect on, capture and communicate their learning and development gained through their time with us.


Who is it for?

Anyone who would like to make friends, feel valued, and lend their time and talents for the benefit of the community….and become part of an amazing team.

As part of each ‘Smile!’  and Skills projects we encourage young people aged 13+  who are willing to give things a go and have a genuine interest in creativity and/or performing arts and would like to help other young people fulfil their potential.
