Intercultural Youth Scotland

Intercultural Youth Scotland (IYS) is Scotland’s major voice for Black and PoC (People of Colour) children and young people. Established in 2019 as a small youth work charity for Black and PoC young people, we have grown as a centre of support, creativity and activism for our community. Our team of over 30 staff members – almost all of us Black and PoC young people ourselves – aim to make IYS a community space, a source of support and a champion for all Black and PoC children and young people in Scotland.

We center anti-racism and the experiences of Black and PoC young people in schools, at work and in personal lives through our Education, Restless Natives, and Youth Work Programmes, and our free Mental Health Service. Our governmental and sectoral advocacy is an extension of these priorities, which focuses on upending the entrenched inequalities and structural exclusion that have cut Black and PoC young people out of decision-making that shapes our lives. When IYS join these spaces of decision-making, we are often the only people present directly engaged and connected into the lives of Black and PoC young people. Our growing presence in Scotland springs from this unique position – advocating for change from others while we make a change directly ourselves.

Job Summary

The Anti-Racism Training Lead will be responsible for Restless Natives’ anti-racism and cultural proficiency training and workshops, as well as the development of our anti-racism accreditation model with partner organisations, higher/further education institutions, and apprenticeship providers. The lead aims to contribute to the development of clear paths for organisational change for workplaces and companies in Scotland – with a particular focus on Glasgow and Edinburgh in the first year of the accreditation – in order to increase access to positive destinations for BPOC young people.
