In order to work with vulnerable people and children the volunteer will be asked to take a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check.

Environmental Education / Nature Craft / Forest School sessions are run at partner sites in South London in in Streatham / West Norwood.

Most of the activities run are aimed at children 3 to 12 years old and we also encourage parents to come along. But some activities are run for older secondary school or college children / young adults normally with support from participating organization staff.

The volunteer role would be to support Nature Vibezzz staff running practical activities on community projects and after school clubs, currently Nature Vibezzz project activities are mainly run on Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays & Mondays.

Plumstead Common project sessions will be run on run on Sundays.

If interested this role can also give volunteers the opportunity to develop their own small community projects or activity sessions through applying for grants or using the resources (tools / equipment / site) available. Therefore giving our volunteers the opportunity to gain valuable project management / development experience.

Any admin / pr work / project development volunteer work would be done in West Norwood, London.

Volunteers shall learn from experienced forest school and environmental education professionals regarding how to manage community projects and practical forest school / children nature sessions. Volunteers can claim London travel expenses.
