Youth Stewards for Nature
The Youth Stewards for Nature programme is a 6-month-long programme suitable for youths aged 18 to 25 years old with some experience in relevant fields such as horticulture, landscape architecture or environmental studies, biological or life sciences, or the following:
- Youth who have completed Youth Nature Explorer programme
- Volunteers with NParks and other relevant community groups
- Biodiversity Friends Forum (BFF) Biodiversity Challenge graduates.
Participants who complete the programme will be conferred a Youth Steward for Nature.
To complete the programme, youths can take up a project in small groups of up to 3 to assist in the implementation of a real-world project. Each team will be mentored by NParks staff and gain access to a panel of resource persons.
Youth can look forward to gain industry-relevant experience in the fields of landscape design, horticulture or biodiversity conservation through the project, and hone soft skills while implementing the project.
Participants must commit to the full 6-month programme, with an estimated 6 to 8 hours required per week (based on site visits, meetings, surveys etc).
Applications have closed on 31 December 2020 and will be reviewed and confirmed by the organising team. Projects begin in January 2021 and will conclude by June 2021.
