Do you want to help lead our grassroots campaigning? Are you a UK university student?
We’re looking for 50 Student Leaders to organise local campaign groups and build our movement. We are looking for highly enthusiastic students from a range of universities with a strong commitment to fighting against extreme poverty and a passion for ONE.
Our student activists use their energy and creativity to run inspiring campaigns at university to influence the decisions that affect the world’s poorest people
As a ONE Student Leader you will help show strength in numbers by promoting online actions. You will get your voice heard with letters and meetings with MPs. And you will raise awareness by holding events on campus and creating a buzz through social media.
You’ll work together in small groups at your university and build support among other students. We’ll assist you with support and guidance from experienced ONE staff, special access to ONE materials and merchandise and unique opportunities to be part of important campaign events (such as handing in a petition to the Prime Minister in Number 10!).
If you are selected as a Student Leader you will be invited to our Student Activist Weekend on Saturday 16th - Monday 18th June, where you will:
learn about ONE’s big campaign plans, including on hunger & agriculture, HIV/AIDS and transparency in the oil industry
gain the skills you need to make these campaigns a success
plan your own campaign activities with ONE staff and other students
start organising your local campaign group
meet other students passionate about ending poverty!
The International ONE Blog is a daily log of the anti-poverty movement. The site is operated by ONE staff, with guest contributions from ONE volunteers, members and allies.
