I’m excited to announce the launch of ONE’s first student activist programme here in the UK. ‘SOAR’ (Students & ONE for Africa Rising) is an amazing opportunity for 100 students to be trained in campaigning and advocacy skills, and to run your own campaigns on campus for ONE.
Whether you’re interested in a future career in international development, feel passionate about fighting extreme poverty, or just want to help make a difference, this could be right for you.
SOAR will be launched at a free weekend training and social event on 29th October in London, followed by another session in Leeds. ONE staff and key speakers will lead exclusive sessions ranging from holding meetings with MPs and getting your campaigns into local media to public speaking tips and how best to promote campaigns online.
This programme is a great chance to gain experience in creating and leading campaigns, and be a part of the solution. We hope you’ll join us.
