Young Humanists Scotland was developed with support from the staff team by young Scottish humanists. The aim of Young Humanists Scotland is to:

  • Develop the understanding of humanism amongst the under 25s
  • Give a voice to young humanists, atheists, and freethinkers in our work locally, nationally, and internationally
  • Create a stronger and more representative Humanist Society Scotland 

 Why should I join?

Young Humanists Scotland is a way for young humanists, atheists and freethinkers to work together to direct the work of Humanist Society Scotland, defend humanist values like human rights and freedom of belief, and in doing so help to build a fairer world.
