Learn alongside Wild Sparks big and small!
Wee Wild Sparks is able to offer volunteering opportunities to those with a genuine interest in and commitment to outdoor learning. We ask for a minimum commitment of 10 weeks to ensure both parties get the most out of the experience. In return we will provide individualised support and mentoring during your placement.
We currently have space for a volunteer on Tuesdays, email us to find out more.
We suggest that propsective volunteers arrange a time to visit the site, meet the team and establish if Wee Wild Sparks is the right volunteering opportunity for them. We will then ask for volunteers to complete a short application and undertake vetting procedures in line with our Child Protection policies.
“My experience of volunteering with Wee Wild Sparks has been enormously rewarding and fulfilling. I have gained a unique insight into the incredible way young children benefit from a forest nursery. I have developed my practical bushcraft skills in all weathers come rain or shine. Jo and Alice’s commitment, experience and resilience are inspirational. They have been patient and valuable mentors and have supported me in my change of career to outdoor education. I was nervous when I first started volunteering but I was made so welcome that now it is the best part of my week!”
