School – ChallengeAid Charity Ambassador
We are looking to appoint four ChallengeAid Charity Ambassadors in every school, ideally a boy and girl in Year 12 and a boy and girl in Year 13.
- These Ambassadors should be confident, motivated young people able to speak with some knowledge about the charity so that they can promote the work of the Charity to their peers and younger members of the school and possibly through their social media network.
- They need to be seen as role models within the school and be able to influence and inspire their peers. It would be desirable if all Ambassadors were able to contribute in other ways to the wider school community.
- Organise at least one school event a year and participate in at least one charity challenge each year.
- They should be able to take responsibility and work under their own initiative and within the team in the school, possibly under the guidance of a member of staff.
- It would be useful but not essential if these individuals were to seek election onto any Charity Committee and/or School Council within the school.
- It would be appreciated if the Ambassador would leave a collection box at a supportive shop or business in their area.
- On leaving school in Year 13, pupils will have identified, coached and mentored at least one other future Ambassador in Year 11 to continue the work of the charity within the school.
- In return pupils will receive an official letter of appointment as a ChallengeAid Charity Ambassador. Their work as a School Ambassador may count as work experience with a voluntary expected contribution of approximately 20 hours over the year. This can be documented on their CV and would be a useful addition for any UCAS application.
- At the completion of the year they will receive a certificate signed by the Charity.
