Ambios are hosting two French volunteers through a project called CARE – Conservation and Rural Employability.
CARE will widen participation in youth volunteering through regular support, accreditation and active citizenship activities + an inclusive, innovative, active volunteer placement with Ambios, & increase volunteer employability and career prospects following participation.
Daniel and Ombe joined us in February 2019 and will be with us for 12 months. Over this period they will take responsibility for a number of projects on the farm, including a comprehensive wildlife survey and monitoring project and overseeing vegetable growing in our organic garden.
As we know, the nature conservation sector requires the next generation of volunteers and learners to develop necessary skills to fill the skills gap, and this project will go some way to tackle this.
