Belfast Hills Partnership’s Youth Team can provide nature inspired sessions for youth in and around the Belfast Hills…


The Belfast Hills Partnership and Ulster Wildlife have joined forces to deliver an exciting new Youth Programme called Wild Youth. Wild Youth deliver wild wellbeing sessions for 11 – 25 year olds in and around the Belfast Hills. Using nature as a tool to connect with young people and increase their physical and mental health, Wild Youth incorporates the 5 ways to wellbeing.

Funded by the National Lottery Community Fund, young people will acquire skills such as bush craft, orienteering, geocaching, and practical conservation like tree planting and surveying wildlife. They will have the chance to gain accreditations and awards. There’ll also be opportunities for older teens and early 20s to train and volunteer as Wild Youth Leaders or Wild Youth Rangers working alongside staff, boosting their employability and work skills. An online community will also be established for young people to engage with the project and share their interests, ideas, views and achievements.
