Act Now

Want to take action in your local community and need help getting started? Want to keep up-to-date with volunteering opportunities and youth offers across Groundwork's trusts? Keen to join our national network of Youth Ambassadors? You've come to the right place!

Groundwork Youth is a national programme aiming to galvanise 16-24 year olds across the UK to take positive action in their local communities. Every year we recruit a network of Youth Ambassadors to develop and launch a national campaign and help promote the importance of youth-led action in local communities and local environments. The Groundwork Youth Network consists of 100 Young Green Ambassadors and 13 Youth Advisory Board members.

Our current Youth Advisory Board Members will attend meetings and events, run workshops, and lead campaigns, steering the programme and using their skills and experiences to help drive forward our national campaign. They represent Groundwork Youth nationally. 

Want to find out more about joining our board? We'll be on the hunt for our next cohort of board members in Spring/ Summer 2018. In the meantime, check out the role description to find out if you think you'd be a great fit.

Our Young Green Ambassadors work closely with our Trusts and local community groups, supporting online and offline campaigns, attending events and developing local projects.
