Our Membership

Learn about our dynamic membership of early to mid career professionals, and peruse our membership directory.

Our members are young leaders from all professional areas: from surgeons to artists to from engineers to historians, we represent some of the most talented young voices in Scotland.

We select our members from all over Scotland; we have diverse backgrounds and experiences, but share a passion for working across boundaries and addressing the greatest challenges facing our society.

At the end of their 5-year term, YAS members are encouraged to become Emeritus members, to remain connected with YAS, participate in events and activities, and share their advice and experience with current members.

Our next recruitment drive is in January 2026. Please visit our Become a Member page for information about membership criteria and the application process.
