ARE YOU LOOKING TO FULFILL YOUR STUDENT VOLUNTEER HOURS?

The AIM programme is designed to Activate, Inspire and Motivate students through volunteering in our open spaces, in our historic buildings, during events and holiday camps. It gives students the opportunity to fulfill their community service requirements with meaningful charitable giving.

Combining community service, education and the great outdoors facilitates youth development, character building and career opportunities.

AIM provides a wide range of options for volunteering, from clearing invasive species in our nature reserves, helping at events, being a holiday camp counselor to painting railings surrounding an historic cemetery.  Every activity brings students into contact with their natural or cultural heritage, under the direction of a knowledgeable supervisor, and aims to  inspires in them a desire to protect our shared heritage.

To register for the AIM programme please fill in the online application form and email palmetto@bnt.bm . Gmail account is not required to complete form.

Come and join our cause, learn new skills, explore new places and meet new people!
