What will you get out of being a Youth Ambassador?

Get a headstart on a successful future

Through BulliesOut training and skills-based workshops, you’ll have the invaluable opportunity to develop your personal, social and leadership skills. We also offer certificates and awards that recognise your contribution to our charity and will help you stand out from the crowd when pursuing further education and employment in the future.

 

Learn to believe in yourself

Our Youth Ambassadors often tell us that their experience with BulliesOut has taught them to believe in themselves in ways they never had before. Join the programme to boost your confidence, self-esteem and personal resilience.

Grow your social circles with new friendships

Join this empowering community of likeminded young people who want to make a difference. We hold regular meetings and social events for ambassadors to meet, share experiences and have fun, and many leave the programme with new lifelong friends!

Be the change you want to see

Every year, millions of young people are affected by bullying. As a Youth Ambassador, you’ll learn how to speak out against these behaviours making your schools and communities safer and happier spaces. Join us to learn how you can use your passion to promote kindness and inclusion among your peers.

 

“Joining BulliesOut is a decision that I’m grateful for making as I’ve met so many incredible people through the programme and experienced opportunities I wouldn’t have gotten without the support of BulliesOut.”

“I started with BulliesOut at the age of 9yrs in my primary school, as a Playground Pal. I then became a BulliesOut Peer Mentor in high school, and also applied to join the Youth Ambassador programme. I attend events, fundraisers, meetings and training sessions, helping me to gain confidence in speaking publicly. Eventually, I was heading into primary schools and delivering presentations to over 250 children, discussing the issue of bullying and how BulliesOut can help. So, 11 years later, BulliesOut and anti-bullying is still a major part of my life and I am proud to be part of the positive impact the charity has”.

Could you be a BulliesOut Youth Anti-Bullying Ambassador?

We’re always on the lookout for inspiring young people to join our mission! You might be exactly what we’re looking for if you:

  • Are aged between 10  and 21 years old;
  • Have a good level of spoken and written English;
  • Are friendly and care about others;
  • Are able to demonstrate a history of good moral and ethical character;
  • Are passionate about reducing the effects of bullying behaviour;
  • Are able to commit to a volunteer role for at least six months.

We’re a busy bunch at BulliesOut, and as an ambassador we will expect you to keep up to date with what we’re up to and, importantly, to keep us updated with what you’ve been doing for the charity! If you’re old enough to use social media, we’d love for you to share your hard work and heartfelt experiences with the world using our hashtags, #BulliesOut, #MakeADifference and #StandUpSpeakOut.

What does a Youth Ambassador do?

Each ambassador’s plan is tailored to their ability, time, interests and confidence levels, but some examples of work that ambassadors have been involved in previously include the following five main areas:

Presentations

If you’re passionate about raising awareness of bullying behaviours in your school, you could deliver a presentation or assembly or simply talk to your class about kindness, friendship and inclusion. You might also want to do this in a local youth group.

Awareness

If you’re eager to spread awareness of bullying and its effects in your local community, you could visit local leisure centres, libraries, community hubs and GP surgeries to encourage them to display our posters and publications. You may also want to promote BulliesOut by handing out our information flyers, cards and newsletters in your school, church, or other groups you’re a part of.

 

Media

Want to spread the word as far as possible? Then media outreach might be a good fit for you! Some of our Youth Ambassadors speak about their experiences to local and national media or their local MP to raise awareness of bullying behaviour and promote positive change.

Campaigning

If you’re committed to making a change on a local level, you could help us by contacting local politicians and decision makers to raise awareness of the effects of bullying in your community. By representing BulliesOut at events, you can speak to members of the public to raise awareness and to encourage people and businesses to join our membership and corporate partnership programmes.

Fundraising

Fundraising is the perfect way for ambitious and adventurous young people to support BulliesOut. Past Youth Ambassadors have taken part in all kinds of activities to raise money for our charity including fun runs, sky dives, bake sales and abseils.

Need to talk?

If you are being bullied or are concerned about someone who is, you can receive help and support from one of our trained Mentors through our e-mentoring service.

If you would like a Mentor to email you, please contact: mentorsonline@bulliesout.com

If you would rather speak to someone over the telephone, you can call Childline on: 0800 1111

For any community-related issues, such as anti-social behaviour, we would suggest contacting your landlord, the local police or your local environmental health department (where applicable), as we are unable to deal with these types of complaints.
