About Just Like Us:

Just Like Us (JLU) is the LGBT+ charity for young people working for a world where LGBT+ young people live awesome lives. 

 

Our mission is to empower young people to be the champions of LGBT+ equality at school and work. To do that, we run three programmes:

 

  • School Diversity Week: our annual initiative empowers teachers and pupils across the country to tackle homophobic, biphobic, and transphobic bullying by organising activities that celebrate LGBT+ equality in education

  • Ambassador Programme: we partner with employers to train LGBT+ young adults to give talks and workshops in schools that use their own stories to champion LGBT+ equality and challenge prejudice    

  • Pride Groups: a pilot programme training teachers to set up student-led LGBT+ and ally groups in schools.

 

Like every startup, we’ve thought hard about our values. We believe that a charity must be dynamic, constantly adapting to focus on what works; that challenging prejudice takes courage; and that empowering young people is the surest way to change the world. 

 

Our ways of working are based on startup best practices: a commitment to user centred design, learning quickly from pilot initiatives and measuring our impact so that we know we’re making a difference.

 

We’ve worked with over 33,000 pupils through our Ambassador Programme and involved a further 1,970,000 school students and school staff in School Diversity Week 2020.  We've been featured in The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph, Attitude, Pink News,  and on the BBC and ITV.
