Volunteer as an
LGBT+ ambassador 
in your area
(our flagship role for 18 - 25 year old
LGBT+ people in the UK)
3 in 4 LGBT+ young people have been bullied, and LGBT+ school students are twice as likely to face discrimination
Our network of 200 trained LGBT+ ambassadors work to change that, by championing LGBT+ equality and allyship in schools and colleges as relatable LGBT+ role models
They also blog, tweet and raise awareness all over the UK
Become an ambassador if you: 
  • live in the UK
  • are 18 - 25 years old and LGBT+
  • have good written and spoken English
  • would like to volunteer with kids
  • have a passion for LGBT+ equality and visibility
(if you're eligible)
(if you can't be an ambassador)
(if you're at uni or college)
What do
ambassadors do?
Complete a 3-day training programme in autumn 2019 - including a residential in London - teaching you how to speak powerfully in schools
Commit to deliver at least 3 Just Like Us school visits (in pairs) locally per year
Join our nationwide LGBT+ ambassador community, taking part in extra projects and campaigns and making life awesome for LGBT+ kids

Why it's great to be an LGBT+ ambassador for Just Like Us
You harness your own experiences and narrative growing up LGBT+ to support LGBT+ kids in the ways that you needed at school
Being an ambassador is a simple, manageable and flexible way to do tangible social action locally
Volunteering outside your work or study bubble - and physically visiting schools - improves mental wellbeing and reduces stress
Ambassadors influence the next generation in schools and online, without needing to out themselves more widely if they don't want to
Be involved in awesome bonus activities and events like our monthly podcast, visits to parliament and video project
Volunteering develops many skills, and our internal development opportunities - like LGBT+ career mentoring - improve your employability
Our ambassadors report feeling happier, prouder and more confident in their own LGBT+ identities after volunteering with us
Be part of a nationwide community of LGBT+ young activists that stays with you past university or college
Be an LGBT+ ambassador
