School speakers needed!
Posted 1 September 2005
We're constantly asked to provide speakers by Religious Education, English, Food Technology, PSHE, General Studies and Citizenship teachers. Animal Aid has always given top priority to education, believing it to be one of the most powerful weapons in the fight against animal abuse. Today's children will be tomorrow's decision-makers, doctors, teachers, journalists, parents, consumers and voters, which is why informing and empowering young people is one of the best ways to create a cruelty-free future.
We already have a well-established network of speakers across the UK, but we are always looking for enthusiastic, new people to join the team and help take our message into schools.
You don't need previous experience of talking to students to become a confident school speaker. We can provide all the training, materials and advice that you will need. Once you embark on giving talks, it won't cost you a penny as all expenses are covered by Animal Aid (if not by the school).
Our workshops are held all over the UK (usually on a Saturday), so there is likely to be one near you sometime over the course of the year. The workshops cover the basics of speaking to students and the best way to present the issues. You will gain confidence and experience in handling the kinds of questions commonly asked, and will be able to exchange ideas and experiences with like-minded people.
If you would like some info on what's involved and the next training day, please fill in the school speakers' form and we'll be in touch. This is your chance to help make the world a kinder place, and develop your own personal skills at the same time! Please send us your details today!
We have produced this eye-catching new leaflet, which will be distributed nationwide. If you can help us distribute the leaflet to friends or other campaigners, please email us and we'll happily send you some supplies.
