Work with us

Volunteer

If you have a passion for education and the outdoors, TGC needs enthusiastic volunteers to enrich the experience of children and families locally, connecting them with nature through schools’ sessions and community activities.

Volunteers support TGC facilitators to deliver high-quality hands-on sessions in green spaces across Islington and beyond. We offer a full induction and training.

We ask for a minimum commitment of 15 half day sessions and all volunteers adhere to TGC’s child protection and safeguarding policy which includes a full DBS check.

Volunteers tell us:

“I enjoyed feeling part of making a difference in the local community.”

“TGC inspired me to follow my dreams and become a primary school teacher.  My life as a student begins…”

Facilitate

TGC works with a pool of committed freelance facilitators and we’re always interested in meeting new, enthusiastic and experienced individuals who can bring outdoor learning to life with flare, energy, knowledge and a passion for nature and the outdoors.

Facilitators are often actors or performers with a TIE background, and an ability to engage 30 children at a time creating memorable and inspiring learning experiences.

TGC works in partnership with London Borough of Islington and other borough councils, community gardens, schools and local business to deliver joint aims and objectives within the local community.
