Ryder Cup Volunteer Support Scheme

Scotland’s Best offers 50 extra volunteering places at The Ryder Cup.

Up to 50 young Scots will receive help and training to volunteer at next year’s Ryder Cup under a new scheme.

The Scottish Government’s Volunteering Support Scheme will give 16 to 24 year olds who face barriers to volunteering at the Ryder Cup the right training and financial support for travel and accommodation.

Resulting in a qualification, the experience will boost future employment opportunities and leave another lasting legacy from hosting the Ryder Cup.

The scheme will form part of the Scotland’s Best initiative, an employability programme set up for young people which combines training and volunteering.

Scotland’s Best is part of the Scottish Government’s £5 million Legacy 2014 Young Persons’ Fund which will offer 1,000 training and volunteering places over two years. Many of these opportunities will tap into the sporting and cultural events across Scotland. The Volunteer Support Scheme is an additional element of the programme.
