Get to know the OYT Scotland Volunteers! ⛵

While Coronavirus may have put a temporary stop to our youth work sailing calendar, our volunteers never stop flying the flag for OYT Scotland. So, in a bid to showcase what being a volunteer for OYT Scotland means to them, we will put the spotlight on a different volunteer each day. We hope you enjoy meeting our hugely valued volunteers!
