Young Green Leader
As part of the year-long Generation Green project, we’re developing a youth engagement programme to open up the landscape to young people to increase confidence, care, and the desire to connect with the natural world on a longer-term basis.
To do this, we’re looking for 10 enthusiastic volunteers, aged 15-25, to join our Young Green Leaders Programme. This is aimed at young people who wish to get more involved with the work of the National Park. We will support the young people in developing their skills and knowledge and encourage them to inspire and engage with other young people who may then themselves become the next green leaders.
We will work with the Young Green Leaders to help them understand and value the National Park’s distinctive natural and cultural qualities. They will get involved with conserving and enhancing these special qualities, and they will also be given the opportunity to enjoy these special landscapes through involvement with organised events and activities. This is also a great opportunity for young people to gain some hands-on experience who may be looking for a career in the conservation / environmental sector (e.g. a Ranger).
