Now recruiting for Foyle Ambassadors

The Foyle Ambassador programme is a FREE summer scheme aimed at 14-17 year olds from the Foyle area who are interested in the natural environment. The programme will run for 6 weeks starting 23rd July through to the end of August.

There will be two groups of Ambassadors that will take part in parallel programmes throughout the 6 week programme.  Group 1 will meet on Mondays and Thursdays and Group 2 will meet on Tuesdays and Fridays.

The Ambassadors will meet at Loughs Agency HQ at Prehen by 9:30am each day and they must be collected at 4:30pm.

Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of activities ranging from water-sports to conservation projects. Throughout the programme they will have the chance to discover the River Foyle, gain qualifications, learn new skills, make new friends and discover new possibilities and opportunities.

The common theme of the project is the river and the purpose of the programme is to get young people connected with the River Foyle, its tributaries, estuary, coast, its wildlife and the recreational opportunities it holds. The hope is that participants on the programme will develop a new and positive understanding of the river and its resources.

If this sounds right up your street, please fill in the expression of interest form (MS Word version or PDF and return it to Allan  by noon on Friday 13th July.   Forms are also available at the Loughs Agency offices (22 Victoria Road, Prehen, Derry~Londonderry, BT47 2AB).  Please note our offices are closed on Thursday 12th and Friday 13th July and only emailed applications will be accepted on those dates.
