Calling all Year 9 and 10 teachers – we’re on the lookout for Campaign Champions!

Do you, and your students, care about ensuring every child across the world gets a quality education? Do you know some outstanding young people who want to use their voices to campaign for change? Want to learn new skills? Then this is the programme for your school!

2023 is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to transform education and unlock children’s futures.

Send My Friend is a group of charities who are all working together to ensure that every child across the world has the right to a quality education.

Becoming a Campaign Champion is an incredible, unique opportunity for 14-15 year olds across the UK, to get involved in high level campaigning on issues of global education, and be empowered to make genuine change. It is their voices that are heard in classrooms, communities and in parliament, saying that all children have the right to a quality education.

The Send My Friend to School campaign is looking for Year 9 & 10 students to join our exciting and established Campaign Champions programme, in 2023-24.
