Contribute to sustainable projects through Raleigh International’s first UK volunteer programme – Re:Green.
This is an opportunity to get out and take urgent action to drive the green recovery and address the climate emergency.
In 2021, we are launching a new immersive 2 and 4 week program designed to increase your skills, knowledge, and ability to directly address the climate emergency. Using our expertise in youth leadership and youth environmental campaigning, we will partner with a recognised conservation organisation to deliver this vital piece of work.
To achieve this, we require the support of our volunteers aged 18-24. Please note that in 2021 this programme is only open to those with a right to live, work or study in the UK.
You will leave with new skills, memories, friendships and recognition of your capacity to create green action and be a change-maker.
What is the difference between the 2 and 4 week programme and what will I actually be doing?
Equip & Mobilise (2 weeks)
You will arrive and spend 2 days taking part in the induction training to learn more about the programme, get to know your team and get ready for the project. Then you will spend the next 9 days supporting essential conservation work and learning about green issues and building campaigning skills. The last day will wrap-up everything you have achieved and plan where you will go from there to continue to take action.
Ignite, Equip & Mobilise (4 weeks)
You will arrive and spend 2 days taking part in the induction training to learn more about the programme, get to know your team and get ready for the project. Then follows the adventure leadership challenge trek – you will spend the next 11 days on the exciting remote team trek in some of the best landscapes the UK has to offer.
After a little rest and recuperation, you will spend 11 days supporting essential conservation work and learning about green issues and building campaigning skills. The last few days will wrap-up everything you have achieved and plan where you’ll go from here to continue to take action.
