Calling all Year 9 and 10 teachers – we’re on the lookout for Campaign Champions!
- Do you have 2 students (aged 14-15) passionate about campaigning and making a difference?
- Are you a school that feels strongly that every child across the world has the right to a quality education?
- Do you want the opportunity for your students’ voices to be heard in classrooms, communities and Parliament?
Then this is the programme for your school!
Send My Friend to School is looking for the next cohort of campaign champions from year 9 and 10 students who would like to be youth leaders and champion our Education in Emergencies Campaign 2023-25.
Becoming a Campaign Champion is an incredible and 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.
What does being a Campaign Champion involve?
- Students and teachers take part in bespoke campaign training starting March 2023
- Students use what they learn to take the campaign message to the heart of government, meeting with MPs, Ministers and other high-level figures
- Students become a champion for the Send My Friend to School campaign within their schools and wider communities, by running local action and events
- Students develop skills such as public speaking, communication, resilience, teamwork and problem solving!
The programme is open to Year 9 & 10 students at state schools and is fully funded by Send My Friend to School. Each school can put forward one application for a pair of two students plus one teacher.
To apply, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for the application form.
We look forward to hearing from you.
