What we're looking for
The RSPB's Schools Outreach Project aims to bring thousands of primary school children closer to nature by connecting them with the nature in their school grounds. As a Schools Outreach Volunteer you'll play an essential role in this project. You'll be responsible for delivering sessions in schools helping children to explore nature in their school grounds; igniting their curiosity, showing them the difference they can make to their environment and motivating them to spend more time outdoors. Studies show children are becoming increasingly distant from nature. As a result, our children are missing out. Experiencing natural places is beneficial to everyone, especially children; for their health, wellbeing, personal and social development and it's essential in helping children develop positive attitudes towards nature. Your natural enthusiasm and knowledge will be vital in encouraging and inspiring children and their teachers to take an interest in the wildlife on their doorstep and make their school grounds more nature-friendly.
