The Parks Trust Youth Rangers
Youth Rangers (14-17 years old)
Youth Rangers is a volunteer group for young people aged 14-17 interested in gaining hands-on skills and experience in environmental work. The programme provides outdoor learning opportunities and challenges that will help prepare participants, both professionally and personally, for future studies and careers within the environmental sector.
We run two 6-month volunteering programmes each the year, January-June and July-December. Sessions take place on the third Saturday each month from 10am-12pm. These meetings take place outdoors in greenspaces all over Milton Keynes, and cover a variety of interesting and engaging topics which include practical conservation work, biodiversity surveying, community tasks and assisting in our outdoor learning and ranger tasks. This is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to meet new people, build confidence, contribute to your community, keep active and gain valuable environmental skills with a landscape charity.
