Children & Young People - Support
Here we will share activities for children and young people in and around the parish.
The Parks Trust Youth Rangers (14-17 year olds)
Youth Rangers is a free volunteer group for young people aged 14-17 interested in gaining hands-on skills and experience in environmental work. The programme provides outdoor learning opportunities and challenges that will help prepare participants, both professionally and personally, for future studies and careers within the environmental sector.
Sessions usually take place on the third Saturday each month from 10am-12pm. These meetings take place outdoors in greenspaces all over Milton Keynes, covering a variety of interesting and engaging topics which include practical conservation work, biodiversity surveying, community tasks and assisting in our outdoor learning and ranger tasks. This is a great opportunity for anyone wishing to meet new people, build confidence, contribute to your community, keep active and gain valuable environmental skills with a landscape charity.
Youth Rangers Taster Session
Are you 16 -17 years old and have thought about joining Youth Rangers but weren't really sure what to expect?
In this FREE taster session, you will get the opportunity to have a go at some of the hands-on practical tasks that happen at Youth Rangers sessions, to help you decide if you would like to join.
This is a great opportunity for you to get outdoors and take part in practical environmental tasks such as animal surveying, habitat protection, and landscaping tasks, whilst also developing communication skills, building confidence, and contributing to your community.
