Intercultural Youth Scotland (IYS) is Scotland’s leading charity for Black and People of Colour  (BPoC) youth.

We are a community, a service and a voice for BPoC young people, providing a safe space and a place to nurture their talents.  We are experts on the challenges facing our community, based on our extensive years of youth work experience, our direct connection with young people and our own personal experiences. Our services cover a wide range from Youth Work, Education, Employability, Advocacy and Mental health

About Us

Who we are

What we are


IYS offers a range of participatory programmes for young BPOC to learn vital skills and further develop themselves.

Whether this be employability skills and positive destination support through our Restless Natives program, as creatives through our various arts provision programs and performance opportunities,  or just a place to hang out and make new friends in one of our informal youth groups, IYS has a place for you!
