The TREE Programme is many different activities and resources gathered under the heading 'Training, Representation, Equality and Engagement'. These are all things Woodcraft Folk aims to give young members. The more fully young people can participate in the organisation, the stronger our future will be.
Woodcraft Folk has always brought children, young people and adults together to learn about and act on social issues, since we were established in 1925 by 19 year-old Leslie Paul. At local and national level, we try to create an atmosphere of equality and co-operation where people of any age can get involved in making decisions, running activities and influencing the movement.
With five years of Big Lottery funding, we're currently able to focus on making sure young people's experience of Woodcraft Folk - from playing games at a weekly group night to sitting on our national trustee board - is as good as possible, and that they can act on the issues that are important to them within the movement and outside of it.

Members of Woodcraft Folk decided on five main ambitions that the organisation should work towards, locally and nationally, between 2008 and 2013. Four cross cutting ambitions were also decided, which will help us achieve the main seven. Two more main ambitions were added in 2010.
Woodcraft Folk has nine Aims and Principles, listed below. These are shared by all members of the movement and inform all our varied activities.
