If you are between 17 and 24 you might be interested in working in the Green Army (and getting paid),
What exactly is the Green Army: You can find our more by watching this YouTube Video but they are a group of youths who get paid to take care of Community organisations, Landcare groups, natural resource management organisations, environment groups, Indigenous organisations, local councils and others can apply to host a Green Army project.
James of Kawana is a Green Army participant and is experiencing the benefits of the programme. He is learning new skills, receiving training and improving his future career prospects while participating in a local project that is making a real difference in the community.

Projects must have a clear environment or heritage conservation focus and offer participants valuable practical experience, while supporting a safe work environment.
