Green Army

Campbell Page is proudly one of the service providers delivering the Green Army programme for the Australian Government. The Green Army is a hands-on, practical, grassroots environmental action programme that supports local environmental and heritage conservation projects across Australia.

This is a fantastic initiative for young Australians aged 17–24 years interested in protecting their local environment. Participants will receive an allowance and gain hands-on, practical skills, training and experience in environmental and conservation fields. Together with our partners Skillset and TAFE Western, we have been running projects across New South Wales, Queensland and the Australian Capital Territory since we started the programme in 2014.

Changing lives and communities

Campbell Page have already completed 36 projects with a further 81 projects in the pipeline! We’ve witnessed first hand how the Green Army has been able to positively impact communities and environmental groups who have partnered with us to achieve big things! We’ve also seen our young participants grow from strength to strength when it comes to developing skills and gaining employment.

Our projects have created over 540 opportunities for young people to be able to engage with their community and environment.   Many of our graduates have left the programme with full time employment in their chosen fields, -a testament to our hands-on approach!

As we continue to develop new projects and opportunities, Campbell Page, Skillset and Tafe Western would like to extend our thanks to the Department of Environment for their continuing support along with the numerous groups and communities that have extended their support that have helped the Campbell Page Green Army make an impact! Watch Paul’s story to hear more about how the Green Army is making a difference.
