Our 2.5 year programme working with 10-16 year olds to encourage environmental social action across Hyndburn.
Thanks to funding from The Ernest Cook Trust national educational charity, young people in Hyndburn were inspired to follow in Greta Thunberg’s footsteps.
The PROSPECTS Foundation is part of a 2.5 year programme to employ 40 Green Mentors around the country. The Green Mentors aim is to enable young people to lead the way as ‘Green Influencers’ on social action projects in their communities.
The pioneering Green Influencers Scheme has been match-funded through the #iwill Fund which is supported by The National Lottery Community Fund and Department of Culture, Media & Sport which are each investing £25million to support young people across England to access high-quality social action opportunities.
Green Influencers aged between 10 and 16 have been engaging in exciting environmental projects across Hyndburn as part of the Green Mentor scheme, please see the news section below for updates.
The Green Mentor scheme has now come to an end, but if you are interested in joining the Green Influencers Scheme locally should contact The PROSPECTS Foundation by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 01254 230348.
