YCAN is entirely run by volunteers. Some have been involved with community groups for many years, while others have come to us out of a desire to do something about the climate crisis, and have never considered themselves as activists.
If you are sick of the inaction from our governments and the influence of the fossil fuel lobby, if you want to make your neighbourhood a more sustainable and pleasant place and meet like-minded people from your local area, then we encourage you to get involved.
One way to meet the YCAN team and find out what we do is to come along to a general meeting or join an existing team. We have a local action group made up of transport, urban agriculture, waste minimisation, energy, and built environment working groups and a state and national actions group.
We will also advertise specific volunteer roles as they become available below. To apply for a volunteer role please contact us.
