LGBT+ ambassador in schools

Details Hide[-]

Every LGBT+ kid should know that someone has their back. Be the one to help that happen by becoming an LGBT+ ambassador.

You can sign up any time and enter our pre-ambassador programme to get a taste of what it’s like learning and educating others about being LGBT+. In October 2021, you’ll train to start your ambassador role. Please note that you must identify as LGBT+ in order to become an ambassador.

The training is spread out across a month (online or in person). This varied, relaxed training connects you with other young LGBT+ people and gives you the skills and knowledge to use your voice to effect change.

You’ll then choose opportunities throughout the year to deliver secondary school talks, create LGBT+ educational resources and media content, and support other LGBT+ young people. At the end of your first year, you’ll have improved school students’ attitudes and behaviours towards LGBT+ people, and improved LGBT+ young people’s lives.

You’ll be able to continue volunteering every year until you’re 25. You’ll get loads back too: our ambassadors participate in exclusive employability and skills training from prestigious employers, and can join our year-long LGBT+ career mentoring scheme. More than that, Just Like Us ambassadors are part of a nationwide community of 300 other LGBT+ young activists who support and learn from each other.
