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?


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


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 $360 million for the programme over four years from 1 July 2015 to support 500 projects each year.

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