Students all across the UK are being invited to take part in The Movember Foundation’s Student Ambassador programme, after applications for the scheme opened recently.
The programme is part of the ‘2017 Big Moustache on Campus’ campaign, which aims to recruit a nationwide team of students to represent the Movember movement at their universities.
The global charity is on the lookout for dedicated students – both ‘Mo Bros’ and ‘Mo Sistas’ – who want to make a difference by spreading awareness around campus about men’s health, helping the charity reach their main goal: to stop men from dying too young.
Student ambassadors will take part in a two-day training programme at the Movember HQ in London, where the Movember campaign team will train them on all aspects of the organisation, which includes talks and workshops from each department.
The training will give volunteers the necessary knowledge and support to go away and run a successful Movember campaign at their university, with all accommodation, travel and food expenses for the sessions being covered.
Starting off in Freshers’ Week 2017, Movember ambassadors will take over their Students’ Union, sports clubs and societies, asking students to sign up for Movember.com and to join their university team.
Ambassadors will also organise events and inspire their fellow students to be as creative as possible when it comes to raising funds and spreading awareness about men’s health.
The charity said: “It’s an amazing opportunity for students looking to gain key skills and experience in leadership, marketing, events and fundraising.
“In return, all participants will receive references from the Movember Foundation as well as special consideration for a summer internship in the Movember Foundation London office.”
Applications for 2017 will be open until Monday, June 5. To apply, email firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to the online application form.Tweet
