Amnesty International Ireland provides training and classroom materials to individuals who want to volunteer as School Speakers. These volunteers act as Amnesty Ambassadors and deliver talks in post-primary schools about human rights, our campaigns, and how young people can take action. School talks take place on an ad-hoc basis during school hours Monday to Fridays. Amnesty reimburses for any costs, and talks are arranged to suit the availability of our volunteers.
Volunteers are Garda Vetted for this role.
We have decided to move our workshops online this year, working with each individual school to ensure that we choose the best platform in a way that works best for each school.
Our next virtual training for those interested in becoming a school speaker is Monday 12th October at 18.30. Email [email protected] to express interest.
