Celebrating 12 months of operations in Green Army
October 2015 sees 12 months of delivering the Green Army Programme for Campbell Page and our partners Skillset and Tafe Western. It has been an exciting 12 months where the programme has developed from concept to full life through project commencements across New South Wales, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory.
The past 12 months of operation have given us a true sense of what can be accomplished through Green Army and how far we can still go to achieve even more. We have now successfully delivered and completed 36 projects with a further 81 currently operating or scheduled to start in the coming 6 months. Across this time of operation, the programme has achieved great outcomes for the various communities and environmental groups who have partnered with our services to achieve environmental goals within their regional areas. Our programme has achieved strong outcomes skills and employment outcomes for the many youth signing on to participate in project activities.
Our projects have created over 540 opportunities to join our project to learn hands on skills and engage with their community and environment. Many of our programme graduates have completed Green Army leaving with fulltime employment in their chosen fields, a testament to the hands-on training and development offered through our programme.
As we continue to develop new projects and opportunities over the next 12 months, Campbell Page, Skillset and Tafe Western would like to extend our thanks to the Department of Environment for their continuing support of the Green Army Programme and the numerous groups and communities that have extended their support to make our Green Army experiences so memorable.
