Generally schemes are put together with very specific aims and objectives. Through this programme we want to empower the young people to come up with their own project ideas based on what is important to them. We what to enable them to tell us what should be done. Ideally we want simply to support them as they apply for match funding, manage budgets and timescales, people involved etc.  We would anticipate a lot of these young people led suggestions will happen later in the project when young people trained and engaged have built up ideas that they would like to undertake.

 

We aim to:

 

  • To give young people the opportunity to undertake small scale environmental projects, empowering them to make a positive impact on their local environment.
  • Make a positive impact on the natural environment.
  • Allow young people to gain real skills in project management, building their confidence in their abilities.
  • See young people progressing to greater employability.
