What is the Green Pathways Project?
Green Pathways is a free scheme that helps vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to take part in positive activities linked to wildlife and conservation in their local community. Sessions consist of practical outdoor activities in local green spaces. Young people will gain confidence, social skills and knowledge of the environment and conservation when undertaking their project.
A project consists of a ten, 2–2.5 hour sessions on a set day of the week, and spans ten weeks. The project can include one large multi-session project such as planning and building a pond or single session activities such as pond dipping or making bee homes.
Who is eligible?
We work with young people up to the age of 18 or 24 if they have a learning disability who fit the criteria of being vulnerable or disadvantaged. Eligibility can include SEND, NEET, Young Carers, Poverty & Deprivation and many more.
We can work with groups of four or more, accompanied by at least one adult.
Sessions are starting in the week commencing 14 September 2020 and we are now taking bookings. For non school referrals we have the capacity to take bookings to start from an earlier date. The deadline for applications to the scheme is 4 September 2020. Bookings will be taken on a first come, first serve basis as we have a limited number of project spaces we can take.
