Join our Green Angels programme and enjoy spending time in some beautiful outdoor places, learning about nature and making improvements for wildlife. Green Angels encourages positive wellbeing through environmental volunteering, gentle nature connection and spending time with others. Projects promote confidence and the development of outdoor and social skills. The programme is open to girls* aged 12-18.
Projects are led by the Green Angels Project Co-ordinator and are supported by adult volunteers. In a safe and supportive environment, girls can just be themselves, exploring and experiencing new things without fear or anxiety. The programme runs once a month on Saturdays throughout the year with some full weekend residentials.
We provide tools and equipment, waterproofs/boots if required and full safety instructions for the task ahead. Transport is provided by minibus from a central location.
Green Angels also supports the achievement of the Volunteering and Skills sections of the DofE Award, and the John Muir Award. The programme is about having fun experiences in the outdoors, making new friends and a positive difference to the environment.
* We welcome trans and non-binary young people on Green Angels.
