A team from Scottish Borders Youth Voice have created a handbook to teach their peers about children's rights.
It took the ten teenagers 18 months to produce the Child Rights Ambassador Handbook, which encourages others to be leaders in their school and community, and pass their knowledge on to their friends.
Funding was provided by Scottish Borders Council, and the Truth About Youth fund.
“It was great to help run our first training session after all our hard work. I am excited about getting the project set up in schools all over the Borders so that other young people can gain the skills and confidence that I have through the child rights group.”
