Join our Youth Board

Young Wardens - John Ferguson 

Are you aged between 11 – 24? Are you a resident in Suffolk and love the wildlife that we share our county with? Are you interested in environmental issues to help safeguard wildlife’s future and prepared to help Suffolk Wildlife Trust make changes for nature’s recovery? If so, then apply to be on Suffolk Wildlife Trust’s Youth Board today! 

Suffolk Wildlife Trust has an exciting opportunity to reach out to and recruit 12 young people to form our new Youth Board. We believe that it’s important for young people’s voices to be heard and we want to provide a platform for young people to be represented and their opinions and ideas to be embedded in our work and to be at the core of the Trust. We want young people to have a say about how the environment can be protected, feel empowered to make a difference, be involved in important decision making and governance, as well as helping us with our ongoing commitment to a more diverse and inclusive culture at Suffolk Wildlife Trust.
