Young People

Team Youth Alex Annual Report 2015 Capel ManorThere are two ways that young people can get involved with the running of the farm; our ‘young volunteers’ sessions, and our work experience program.

Both provide opportunities to learn about animal care, food growing, environmental education, rural arts, enterprise, charities, volunteering and more.

 

Young Volunteers (12-18yr olds)

The young volunteers sessions run every Sunday from 1-4pm. This information sheet gives a summary of the kind of activities and projects that take place. Before attending, young volunteers must complete this registration form. Section B must be filled out by the young person’s parent/carer.

Once the application form has been filled out, young volunteers need to attend an induction the first time they come along. Inductions take place at 12.30 pm every Sunday.

The sessions are led by experienced youth workers and adult volunteers.

Work Experience (14-18yr olds)

We offer a limited number of 1 or 2 week placements to local students in year 10, or in 6th form. Read this information sheet to find out more about work experience placements on the farm, and complete this application form if you would like to apply.
