Launching Groundwork Youth

I just sent this blast:

You may have heard of Groundwork UK - a community charity with a green heart.

Groundwork Youth in an initiative for 16-24s, empowering young people to have a say on local environmental issues in their area. We are looking to recruit 100 Young Green Ambassadors and 12 Youth Advisory Board members, to help us drive forward a national campaign.

Both Ambassadors and Youth Board Member will be provided with training at our annual Youth Summit, and support to run campaigns or projects in their areas with our local Trusts and community partners.

We need your help to promote recruitment for these two roles so please share the advert below far and wide, if you can.

Please get in touch if you would like more info, to work in partnership on volunteer development pathways, or work with a Groundwork Trust locally. Thanks, Stephanie :)


Groundwork Youth recruiting across the UK - applications open!

Groundwork Youth is a platform for 16 – 24 year olds to take action in their local environment, providing you with opportunities and experiences that develops your leadership potential and connects you with like-minded people wanting to make a difference in their communities.

Groundwork Youth are inviting you to join their Youth Network driving forward a national campaign. They are looking for 100 young people to join as Young Green Ambassadors and for 12 to take up positions on their Youth Advisory Board. Applications for both roles are now open and close on 5th July.

By undertaking this flexible, voluntary role with Groundwork UK, a leading environmental community charity, you will receive full training alongside other Ambassadors at an annual Youth Summit and ongoing support to achieve your goals. You will run campaigns, projects and represent your area across the UK, meeting other environmental leaders and gaining voluntary experience with various partner organisations.

Youth Advisory Board Members will attend meetings to steer the programme, using their existing skills and experiences to help drive forward our national campaign, and represent Groundwork Youth nationally.

Young Green Ambassadors will work closely with our Trusts and local community groups, supporting online and offline campaigns and events, and developing local projects.
