Green Influencers Scheme

Monday, 14 December 2020

Woodcraft Folk are pleased to join 40 other organisations in the Ernest Cook #iwill Green Influencers Scheme. The project will be launched in January 2021 and will seek to support and engage young people (10-14 years) in participating in and designed green social projects. Our project will work across Leeds and Bradford throughout 2021 and 2022.

The Green Influencers Scheme was borne out of a desire to help young people reliase their potential to positively impact the environment through youth social action: habitat conservation, tree planting, litter picking, lobbying etc.

Young people will learn new skills and gain experience and confidence as they take action on the issues important to them. 

As part of the project Woodcraft Folk will be recruting a dedicated Development Officer to work with partners and groups of young people. For more information about the part-time Development Officer (Green Mentor) vacancy please visit here.

The Green Influencers Scheme is funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and the Department of Culture, Media & Sport are each investing £25 million seed funding to create the #iwill Fund. The Ernest Cook Trust is acting as a match funder and awarding grants on behalf of the #iwill Fund.
