Next week on 8 August the DYW team, partners, board members and friends will be taking part in the social media campaign #nowrongpath to highlight to all young people that there is no wrong path in getting to where you want to be. The campaign has been devised by our DYW colleagues in Glasgow, and will use the hashtag #nowrongpath. We want to promote the message that people in interesting jobs across Scotland may not have taken a straight, obvious or traditional path to get there. We’d like people from a variety of sectors and professions to share a snippet of their story – what they did when they left school and where they are now. We want young people to know that there are a variety of ways to get into a variety of jobs – that there is #nowrongpath.
