Volunteer with us

What our volunteers do

Our volunteers visit schools to carry out Eco-Schools Green Flag assessments.

As a Volunteer Eco-Schools Assessor you will visit schools in your area to help us assess whether a school has met the criteria required to achieve the Eco-Schools Green Flag.

An assessment visit will usually last between one and two hours and you will be fully trained beforehand.
