Listen to some of our amazing Youth Ambassadors as they tell us what being part of the team means to them:
Our Youth Ambassadors are a dynamic team of young volunteers working together to help deal with the issue of bullying. They are committed and dedicated and all have a passion to Make A Difference in their local communities. The programme is open all year round and you can join wherever you live and whatever your background and interests are.
To benefit fully from the programme, we encourage you to join for a minimum of 12 months, during which we will inspire you through exciting and rewarding opportunities and experiences. To recognise your commitment, BulliesOut will offer training and skills-based activity sessions and access to a positive, supportive community of young people from all over the UK, all of whom are passionate about the anti-bullying message and want to get their voices heard. You also have the opportunity to achieve a Youth Achievement Award.

If you have a question or would just like some more information about being a Youth Ambassador then you can:
If you are being bullied or are concerned about someone who is, you can receive help and support from one of our trained Mentors. We currently do not have the ability to provide support face to face or via the telephone and can only provide an e-mentoring service to those affected by bullying.
If you would like a Mentor to email you, please contact: email@example.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.
