30 under 30 is training scheme which seeks to find and develop an annual cohort of 30 promising young people aged under 30 in the Green Party - boosting their skills and confidence, and giving disadvantaged young people opportunities they wouldn’t get otherwise.
Since the first 30 started six years ago, many have gone on to do brilliant things within the party. With your help, we can fund another generation of Young Greens to do even more. The scheme offers five fully-funded training weekends a year, in a variety of areas including media, winning elections, policy, and public engagement.
We want to give Young Greens the skills and opportunities to become Green Councillors and MPs – not just in the far future, but right now.
However, it costs over £5,000 a year to run 30 under 30. We need money to help pay for travel and accommodation costs - so that anyone can take part, no matter which part of the country they live in.
Will you support 30 under 30 with a monthly or one-off donation?
By sponsoring one of our 30 under 30ers for just £2 a month or more, you will ensure that we can run the scheme more sustainably and plan better for the future.
£5 a month will contribute towards food costs for one person going through the scheme
£10 a month will cover annual travel costs for a 30 under 30 member to travel to training weekends
£25 a month will pay for two Young Greens’ annual membership to the 30 under 30 Scheme
In return, you will receive a mailing to let you know how our 30ers are getting on, as well as knowing you are helping to nurture a network of skilled and talented activists within the Green Party.
Any help you can give will help to make the scheme more sustainable!
“I have really valued my 30 under 30 experience. It has exposed me to wonderful people and afforded me the confidence to become involved in the party on a level I would not have believed possible before the scheme.”
~ Siobhán MacMahon, 30 under 30 alumni and former Young Greens’ Co-Chair
