Bonny Downs Community Association
Grow Together Be Together community garden, entrance on Wellington Road E6 6EB

Posted: 31/01/2019

Deadline: 17/03/2019

Compensation: Voluntary position

Unpaid Volunteer Flexible hours

Job description

We are looking for volunteers to kick-start our exciting new Schools Project!

The Schools Project will deliver free environmental education sessions to primary schools and local families in Newham. And we need your help!

This is a great opportunity to gain and develop skills in environmental education. You will support our staff to deliver environmental education sessions by:

  • Encouraging children to explore and learn from the natural environment
  • Leading activities like minibeast hunts, games and stories
  • Preparing materials and equipment

We are looking for a commitment of one to three days per week on Mondays, Thursdays and/or Saturdays.

We will provide all the necessary training and support. No experience is required but an enthusiasm for the outdoors and working with children is essential.

Please note that all volunteers will need to complete a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service, formerly CRB) check before working with children. Having a criminal conviction will not necessarily bar you from volunteering with us, it is just something that will need to be considered.
