Young people offered route to inspiration and qualification

A leading Moray environmental education charity is offering young people the chance to learn more about becoming outdoor activity leaders in the community.

Findhorn based Wild Things works with schools throughout Moray and has attracted widespread praise for their work – as well as much needed financial backing from a variety of sources.

The charity is now seeking committed young people aged over 15 years who are keen to help and inspire others by taking part in a Youth Leader Programme.

Spokesman Chris Worthington said: “We are currently running a volunteer programme for individuals aged 15-24, this is a great opportunity for young people who love, or would like to learn more about the great outdoors.

“Volunteers will also benefit from a two day first aid course, a level 2 NCFE qualification in bushcraft and the chance to take part in a range of activities as much or as little as they can.

“Volunteering with us will offer a great learning opportunity and a chance to build interpersonal skills and boost confidence by working with groups. It will also enhance chances of future employment by leading to further qualifications.”

Anyone interested in taking part in the Youth Leader Programme is invited to contact Wild Things field work manager Holly Willmott on 01309 690450 or by email to
