What if all of Scotland’s young people had a resilience instruction manual that could help them create a brighter future?
Since launching their first programme three years ago, iheart Scotland has been the epitome of a fast-growing, highly impactful iheart branch north of the border. In a short period of time, iheart Scotland has taught 1,200 children and young people in regions as diverse as Aberdeenshire, Ayrshire, Clackmannanshire, East Dunbartonshire, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverclyde, North Lanarkshire, Stirling, and Perth and Kinross. This is no small feat for a team of three people!
Together we can build psychologically thriving schools, families and communities!
