The Youth Volunteering for Nature is part of the Victoria’s Great Outdoors program, which seeks to get more Victorians, from all walks of life outdoors enjoying nature.
We want to empower youth all over Victoria to become champions for nature by creating innovative answers to challenges facing Victoria’s natural environment. Youth Volunteering for Nature is looking for ideas that engage with the community through environmental volunteering to protect and preserve Victoria’s special places for future generations.
Funding is available for a broad range of projects. We are looking for innovative project ideas that champion environmental volunteering, have a positive impact on Victorian environmental, historic and/or Aboriginal cultural heritage values, encourage more young people to volunteer for nature and provide lessons for the future.
