Do I have to do it all?

Beach Rangers has been designed to allow you to take part in a capacity that suits you. We want you to enjoy being a Beach Ranger and build your skills, as well as doing great work for the environment.

How much time is involved?

You can take part in a way that suits you.  Individual training sessions can be certified.

But if you want to complete the Beach Rangers programme, there is a minimum amount of time you need to commit.

Bronze = 15 hours volunteering and 15 hours well-being activity

Silver = 25 hours volunteering and 15 hours well-being activity

Gold = 40 hours volunteering and 15 hours well-being activity

What volunteering can I do?

There’s a whole load of activities you can do like beach cleans, helping out at youth groups and supporting charities.

There are also local marine conservation groups established around Cornwall who are always on the look out for volunteers.

What well-being activities can I do?

Anything that gets you out and active. There’s running, walking, dance, fitness classes, kite flying, dog walking, football, rugby, SUP, badminton, horse riding, surfing, skateboarding, rollerskating and swimming.

What training can I do?

There’s loads of different training covering a range of interests. Stuff like first aid, STEM training, how to make money and learning about animal rescue with the RSPCA.

Why do I need to volunteer?

When it comes to UCAS or job applications, it’s important to stand out from the crowd. Volunteering can help you do this. It helps you get a foot in the door as it improves employability, gives you an opportunity to meet new people and network, boosts your CV, helps you understand time management and makes people feel better.
