The Green Army is a hands-on, practical environmental action programme that supports local environment and heritage conservation projects across Australia.

How do I get involved?

Participants

Are you aged between 17 and 24 and interested in gaining practical training and experience while being paid to work in your local environment?

Projects

Community organisations, Landcare groups, natural resource management organisations, environment groups, Indigenous organisations, local councils and others can apply to host a Green Army project.

The Australian Government has allocated more than $700 million for the programme over four years from 1 July 2015. The programme will support 250 projects in 2014-15, 500 projects in 2015-16, 750 projects in 2016-17, and build to 1,500 by 2018-19.

The Australian Government has engaged five Service Providers to help deliver the programme on the ground.
