Green Academies Project Youth Ranger Activities Volunteer with the National Trust

Green Academies Projects are currently running at a number of National Trust properties in England, with the aim of helping young people become passionate about the environment, learn new skills, prepare for employment or education, and take their enthusiasm back to their communities. We will be engaging with young people between the ages of 11 and 24 at our National Trust sites, as well as at local green spaces across the region. Participants will have the chance to work on a wide variety of environmental projects and activities including building outdoor classrooms food growing wildlife surveys wild camping and a range of heritage and conservation skills. We will also be helping young people develop communication, team working and project management skills.
The GAP team needs volunteers to help us deliver activities at Dunham Massey and in Partington and Carrington support and encourage young people share experiences and knowledge and help make this exciting project a success. Our GAP Activities Volunteers will play a key part of making this project a success with their enthusiasm desire to help young people and willingness to lead by example.
