Nearly all the activities we offer involve students because we believe that they often have the greatest impact on young peoples' opinions. As a Student Ambassador, you will become a role model to the young people we work with. This offers a responsibility that can be both challenging and extremely rewarding. Having recently been through the same stages in education, current students are ideally placed to provide support and guidance to young people at this critical time in their education.
