Green Shoots programmes create a supportive and inclusive environment for young people to connect with themselves and others in small group settings. Through a range of practical and participatory outdoor activities young people can develop life skills that give them the confidence and resilience to deal with a range of challenges.
Green Shoots uses basic wilderness living skills and nature connection techniques to support young people to deepen their connection to the natural environment. Young people work together to make practical improvements to local greenspaces.
Programmes are led by the Green Shoots Project Co-ordinator and are supported by adult volunteers. Skilled and experienced leadership promotes teamwork and positive ways of working with others.
