Surrey Youth Stewardship Squad (SYSS) (Ages 13-18) - - SYSS Member
Surrey Youth Stewardship Squad (SYSS) is for high-school youth ages 13-18.
SYSS is a platform for youth to speak up and take action on environmental issues. We restore and enhance our urban forest, advocate for our environment at community events, and grow a community of young leaders who care for nature.
SYSS events have been cancelled until further notice due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. You can still create a volunteer profile to be informed when events will happen again.
What we do:
- Remove invasive plants like Himalayan Blackberry and English Ivy
- Plant native trees and shrubs each spring and fall
- Attend community events to help teach people about Surrey's urban forest
How you will grow:
- Join a community of like-minded youth to plan events
- Gain leadership experience in a supportive team environment
- Earn volunteer hours and outdoor field experience with hands-on work
- 13 – 18 years old (in high school)
- Comfortable working outdoors in all weather conditions
- 1-5 hours for each activity
- Most SYSS events are drop-in, meaning you don't have to stay the whole time. You can stay for as short or long as you like
- Various parks and places around Surrey
