Youth Participation Forever

The TREE programme, which ran from 2009 to 2014, supported young Woodies aged 10 - 18 to have their voices heard, to take on new roles and challenges, and to learn new skills such as communication, facilitation, decision-making and many forms of leadership.

Although funding for the work has currently finished, empowering young people is still very important in Woodcraft Folk. Here you can download a list of TREE's main messages for Woodcraft Folk - please read, remember and act on these!
