Are you 16-25 and want to be a voice for others in environmental education?
If so, you can apply today to be on the Field Studies Council Youth Council. The Field Studies Council (FSC) is one of the UK’s leading environmental education charities with nearly 80 years of experience!
Every year, thousands of young people attend Field Studies Council courses to connect with the outdoors and learn key biodiversity skills and they want young people to be more involved in what they do!
The Youth Council is entering its second year and after an impactful first year, the Field Studies Council would love to have some new voices join them to be a representative for young people who engage with them.
One Youth Council member said: “It is a fantastic opportunity to help influence projects, making them more appealing and accessible to young people. I also feel young people are not aware of the FSC and the valuable projects and programmes they provide and how young people could benefit from, such as the wide variety of educational camps and the valuable skills they can learn from these.”
If you want to gain experience and new skills while making a real difference in supporting young people by being their voice and representative, then apply today to be a part of the FSC Youth Council. Examples of youth council activities include participating in focus groups, helping with marketing plans, or being part of youth-led research projects.
The application process is quick and easy. All the Field Studies Council needs to know is what your interests are and why you would like to join the youth council for a leading environmental education charity.
So, if this sounds like something you want to be a part of then apply today and be part of a group of like minded young people who are helping shape environmental education.
But hurry! Applications close 10 April. More information and application forms can be found on the FSC website.
Please note, this is a voluntary position.
