The Big Moustache on Campus campaign are on the look out for some new student ambassadors to help raise money and fight the stigma of men’s heath issues.
Student Ambassadors for Movember will be tasked with driving Movember sign-ups at their university, organising fun events and spreading awareness about problems men face.
If you choose to become an ambassador you’ll receive two days training at Movember HQ in London, with accommodation, travel and food expenses all covered. You’ll also receive talks and workshops, supporting you and your Movember campaign.
What’s in it for you?
This experience provides an incredible opportunity for students to gain some key skills and experience in leadership, marketing, events and fundraising. As a result of all your hard work you’ll receieve references from the Movember Foundation as well as special recommendation for a summer internship at the Movember offices.
Jesper, from Aberdeen University, was a 2016 ambassador who loved every minute of the experience.
He said: “Being a student ambassador for Movember was a very rewarding and enjoyable experience. Leading the Movember campaign for my university helped me develop many skills and help spread awareness for men’s health.
“I do Movember because I want to play my part in the worldwide fundraising efforts that allows Movember to support such a variety of fantastic programmes that combat men’s health issues often overlooked. Too many men are dying too young.”
The Movember Foundation is the only charity tackling men’s health on a global scale, year round. By 2030, Movember aims to reduce the number of men dying prematurely by 25%.
The Foundation funds game-changing men’s health projects. Millions have joined the movement, raising £443M to help to fund over 1,200 projects focusing on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.
