The Green Influencers Scheme: A New Youth Environmental Social Action Fund

The Ernest Cook Trust (in partnership with the #iwill Fund) has launched a new funding programme for the environment and youth work sector - the Green Influencers Scheme.  The scheme will fund 40 Green Mentor posts based in Host Organisations (Registered Charities or Not-for-Profit organisations) across England until January 2023.

Green Mentors will be tasked with recruiting and supporting groups of young people (10-14 years old) in running environmental social action projects that tackle the climate crisis and connect to their local communities. The scheme can provide £15,000 per year to help cover a Green Mentor salary and £3,000 towards the organisations administration costs. Additional funds are then available for individual Green Influencers groups to kickstart their projects.

Applications to be a host organisation are open now.  Deadline for applications is 23rd October at 5pm.
