Join the next generation of environmental leaders
vinspired Eco Talent is a full-time volunteering programme for young people living in London and interested in the environment.
Eco Talent is a great opportunity for you to develop real world skills that can help you into employment or education in the environment sector. By the end of it, you'll walk out with an environment-related accredited Level 2/3 qualification, too.
We're looking for young people who are willing to step up and create what is rightfully theirs: a healthy planet, a thriving economy and a brighter future. If that's you, read on!
How to get involved
What do I have to do?
You'll need to commit to volunteering for four days per week, over six months on an environmental project.
What do I get?
You can get up to £100 per week for living expenses, as well as achieving a Level 2/3 qualification. On top of that, you’ll be developing valuable skills and experience for work and giving back to your local community.
How do I apply?
This programme is open to young people aged 16-25 who are based in the London area. If you fit the bill, get in touch with Leigh Jenkins for information on how to apply.

What's so good about it?
"After taking part in vinspired’s Talent programme I am learning more academically now than I ever did. I have enrolled in a number of courses to prepare me for a future in youth work and I have already achieved a huge number of qualifications. Without vInspired Talent I wouldn’t have known that half the qualifications even existed!
The whole experience has changed me. I am now so much more confident and independent. I am now an adult."
