New Young Volunteer Programme

We were really excited to pilot our Young People Volunteering Programme as part of the Year of Young People 2018. It was a great success with lots of young people enjoying getting involved in making our National Park a better place for people and wildlife.

We are really pleased to be able to provide an ongoing annual programme for young people aged 16 – 25 running throughout the year with a variety of amazing opportunities.  We would love for you to get involved.

‘It was lots of fun because we got to try new things’ – Harriet Holden (Junior Ranger)

Volunteering with us gives you the chance to:

  • Try something new. Doing something different always brings new experiences and sometimes you will find something you really love.
  • Connect with nature. Experience and learn about an abundance of wildlife and nature in the National Park while meeting new friends.
  • Get involved. Whatever you enjoy, there’s a wide range of activities, projects and tasks for you to get involved with.

Please don’t worry: we have plenty of outdoor weatherproof clothing you can borrow, just let us know what you need – getting muddy and wet is part of the fun!

Learning survival skills in the National Park


  • On 14th September our young volunteers have been invited to attend and help out at Clanscape Ben Lomond, at Ardess near Rowardennan; this cultural event celebrates the lifestyle of the Clans and you will get a chance to try your hand at a variety of traditional skills.
  • On 23rd November our young volunteers will head to the Carrick on Loch Lomond to join Ranger Jenny and help to maintain the wildlife pond, which is really important for amphibians and aquatic creatures.

We can arrange transport and weatherproof clothing for everyone in the young volunteering programme, just let us know what you would like and we can help you out.

If you would like to be involved please get in touch:

Please get in touch if you would like to come along to any of the tasks or would like more information about the programme, we can’t wait to meet you and welcome you to the young volunteer programme.
