Young Natural Ambassadors
Thanks to a generous benefactor The Sustainability Centre in East Meon is delighted to be able to offer a young person the chance to gain experience of traditional crafts and outdoor skills such as bushcraft, nature conservation, wildlife photography, blacksmithing, coppicing or woodland management, which can then be used to further career prospects, as part of our ‘Young Natural Ambassadors Award’
The Bursary-holder will also receive support and development sessions designed to help them sustain their progress beyond the year of the Bursary.
Applicants must be aged between 14 and 21, and although formal qualifications are not required, applicants must have an interest in the ‘outdoors’, a desire to further their experience in this area, with a potential view to developing a career using these skills and a willingness to engage with programme tutors and support staff.
We are delighted to announce that the 2018 'Young Natural Ambassadors Bursary' has been awarded.
The deadline for applications in 2019 has passed. To apply for 2020 please contact our Education Manager.
Janet Hammerton, Education Manager at the Centre explained...
“We have a fantastic track record of providing hands-on learning and working with hard-to-reach young people, or those who struggle in a more formal setting and helping them to turn their lives around. The ‘Young Natural Ambassadors Award’ takes this to the next level by offering one young person 18 sessions of one-on-one skills and personal development tailored to their needs, aspirations and interests".
