Inspire Youth Activists & Parliamentarians - Nationwide Speaker Tour Opportunity
Posted on: October 8 2012, 03:08 pm

Help inspire young AIDS activists by being a speaker for our Student Stop AIDS Campaign Tour 2013
 
We are looking for a passionate, young (roughly 18-35) speaker from UK/Ireland, to join us on our annual Student Stop AIDS Campaign Tour. In this unique role, you will tour the UK, to help bring to life the issues behind the HIV/AIDS pandemic by telling your personal story to students and decision-makers and inspiring them to take action.
 
There are few things as powerful as hearing about the stinging words of stigma from the person who had to endure them; or the injustice of treatment coverage from one lucky enough to receive it. Hearing these stories can bring the human reality of the HIV/AIDS pandemic very sharply into focus.
 
You will need to commit for a week of training in the w/c 21st January 2013 to help you develop your story before the tour begins. After the training, the tour will visit around 20 Universities across the UK within a four week period, including meetings in Parliament with key UK decision makers. The tour runs from Monday 28th January until Friday 23rd February. We are offering this as a full or part time opportunity, therefore please outline how many full weeks you are available for in your application (you must be available for at least one full week).
 
This is an unpaid voluntary role however expenses will be covered including travel, basic accommodation and some phone costs, and you will receive a weekly per diem for food/sundries throughout the tour.
 
For more information please see the Role Description and Application form linked here. http://students.stopaidscampaign.org/2012/09/calling-national-speakers-for-our-flagship-campaign-tour/

If you would like an informal chat with the tour coordinator or a past British speaker please do get in touch with Kate on 0207 808 1782.
 
Please complete the application form by Friday 26th October 2012 and send to Kate at kates@restlessdevelopment.org
