Generation Green Volunteer

Join the Generation Green team!

If you’re passionate about the planet and enthusiastic about education then joining our team could be right for you!  As part of our Green team you will be based at one of our centres where we’ll train you on our instructor programme, then, working in small teams, you’ll take the adventure to the people!  You’ll be delivering the Green Champion programme to the heart of communities, as well as being a tutor on the Green Young Leader programme.

In addition to our Generation Green programmes you will also be part of our wider volunteer team, living and working alongside 45 volunteers and making friends for life.  You’ll live on centre, helping deliver all aspects of giving young people an adventure – from teaching Archery to making beds and emptying the bins!

    What’s in it for you?

     

    For full time volunteers we’ll cover your living expenses while you are with us – including accommodation, uniform, catering, and weekly expenses so you can buy the things you need.  You’ll also have the opportunity to gain nationally recognised outdoor qualifications, and if you’re a section leader in the Scouts we’ll help you to validate your leader training modules.  For flexible volunteers you’ll get expenses for getting to the locations, uniform, food and accommodation when you are volunteering for us.

    Find out more about who we’re looking for and how volunteering works further down the page.

    Tell me more about volunteering? 

    To be part of the green team you’ll need to be passionate about the planet, and enthusiastic about education, ideally you will have an A-Level (or equivalent) in a nature related subject (Geography, Biology, Environmental Science or similar).  You’ll need to be available to join our team from May until at least September (with the opportunity to stay longer) and since you’ll be delivering programmes in communities you will need to be happy to with regularly spending time “on the road”. 

    Volunteering for Scout Adventures is exciting but it also takes a lot of energy and initiative!  You’ll be motivated by being part of a diverse team, the fast and dynamic pace of work, you’ll be ready to help anywhere you’re needed (even if it's raining!) and most importantly you’ll believe in and live by our values – Integrity, Care, Belief, Respect and Cooperation. 

    Interested but not sure about your Green credentials? 

    We’ve a role for you too!  If you fit the bill but don’t have the background knowledge on Green issues then you can still volunteer in our team.  You’ll spend more time at our centres (rather than in communities) and your training will be more focused on delivering adventurous activities – but there will still be the chance to work on Generation Green programmes.
