Poole Enviroteers is a volunteer initiative aspiring to get all residents of Poole taking action in their local open spaces. Poole Enviroteers promotes the work of local community groups, alongside opportunities at the ‘new to you’ waste-minimising shop, whilst also supporting individuals in taking action in their local open spaces through our own volunteer activity days!
All our volunteer opportunities:
- Offer taster sessions
- Have no-commitment attached
- Are welcoming to all and you are always welcome to bring friends!
We love for the residents of Poole to bring their volunteer ideas to us and we always look to support and facilitate these ideas across the Borough. So if you have an idea, contact us today!
If you are a student at Arts University Bournemouth or Bournemouth University you can also find our opportunities as part of your Students Unions volunteer websites.
