Clacks Youth Timebank

Clacks Youth Timebank

Clacks Youth Timebank involves young people ages 12 - 24 years in volunteering activities and improves youth volunteer opportunities.

Timebank involves supporting young people in creating and managing their own volunteer projects, encouraging them to take part in the wider life of the community. It encourages and supports youth-led community action.

How does it work?

For every hour that you volunteer you will gain a time credit, these will then be converted into Young Scot reward points and sent to you every time you hit a milestone.

The milestones are as follows:

  • Sign Up - 50 points
  • 2 credits - 50
  • 5 credits - 100
  • 10 credits - 250
  • 25 credits - 500
  • 50 credits - 1,000
  • 100 credits - 1,500
  • 150 credits - 1,750
  • 200 credits - 2,000

For every 50 additional hours you will gain another 100 points.

What do you do to gain credits?
  • Help at local Youth Club
  • Sit on the management committee
  • Help at community events
  • Support activities
  • Do community projects
  • Assist at local projects
  • Assist at local charity
  • Developing information and services for other young people

1 hour of voluntary work equals 1 hour of time credits, for example, if a community project takes 10 hours to plan and 4 hours to carry, 14 credits will be earned.

If an outing/activity is to last for 4 hours, 4 time credits are needed to attend.

Young Scot Reward Points

You need to sign up to the reward scheme on the Young Scot website. If you do not have a Young Scot card please get in touch and we will get this sorted for you.

Once you have signed up for the scheme you can enter your voucher codes to record your points.

You can register for rewards by visiting the Young Scot website.

You will be able to redeem your points on a range of training, activities, goodies, events, work experience and much more. I hope that you take full advantage of this opportunity to gain and redeem points, if there is something that you think we should be adding to the rewards please let us know.
