Join the Green Army!

Is this for you?

Are you aged between 17 and 24, an Australian citizen or permanent resident and would like to be a part of a team that will make a REAL difference to the environment in your local community?

Would you like to be paid an allowance while gaining skills, training and experience that can help you enter the workforce, improve your career opportunities or further your education and training?

Then the GREEN ARMY is for you.

The Green Army is an Australian Government initiative open to young people including Indigenous Australians, school leavers, gap year students, graduates and job seekers who are looking to develop skills, undertake training and gain experience in the delivery of conservation projects. Through this, participants will enhance opportunities for careers and further training in conservation.

Connecting ecological communities across the ACT

Team members will be involved a wide range of conservation projects in the greater Canberra area. We will be working on multiple sites across Canberra and adjoining NSW, including Canberra Nature Park, Scottsdale Reserve, Ginninderra Creek and Royalla.

The project will:

  • Reverse the long-term decline in the extent and quality of Australian native vegetation
  • Protect and restore a freshwater ecosystem
