Action for Conservation
About Action for ConservationWe are an environmental education charity that works with young people across the UK with the aim of empowering the next generation to protect the natural world. Our programmes build knowledge and encourage young people to take action through environmental projects. 

Action for Conservation’s (AFC) WildED secondary school programme supports students in delivering local environmental action projects that are relevant to them, increasing connection to nature and building soft skills and confidence. Each term their team works with multiple schools across London and the South East of England. The programme relies on a team of young conservationists from across the world who bring their real-world experiences to the classroom and show students what being a conservationist can look like.

Time commitment

We would like volunteers, where possible, to work with one school a term as this gives volunteers and young people a chance to build rapport. This involves 3x 2-hour workshops each term although we do understand that this is not always feasible and we'd love to hear from you regardless!

All workshops will be added to a live calendar so you can self sign-up to workshops according to your schedule.
What measures have you put in place to ensure volunteers’ safety during COVID-19?
Action for Conservation is committed to providing a safe environment for our employees, their families, our volunteers and our schools. Throughout this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic Action for Conservation has taken practical steps and implemented robust measures to ensure the welfare of all. We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and are keeping up to date with the latest government and public health agencies’ advice.

This organisation is one of our community partner organisations.

Like all volunteer recruiters we work with, they have signed up to our service standards, agreeing to abide by our policy on partnership working.

In addition, the team here at Students’ Union UCL Volunteering Service is here to support you throughout your volunteering journey – you can get in touch at any time with any questions, queries or problems you encounter.
