I have just been trained as an Anti-Bullying Ambassador
At The Diana Award we like to make sure that we don’t loose contact with our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors after they’ve been trained by us. By being an Anti-Bullying Ambassador and a part of the Diana Award you have access to a lot of exciting opportunities.
Each year we elect a new Anti-Bullying Ambassador Youth Board. The Youth Board are a group of young people who have received our Anti-Bullying training, who are passionate about stopping bullying and who have taken a lead in their school or community to reduce bullying.
They are the voice of our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors across the country. Some of the Youth Board’s duties include representing The Diana Award at events, attending regular meetings in London, spreading the message of Anti-Bullying in their schools and communities and taking an active role in helping us develop the programme.
So far our current Youth Board have visited Facebook’s Headquarters in Dublin, attended a debate in European Parliament in Brussels and helped us to co-ordinate National Anti-Bullying Week. To meet our current National Anti-Bullying Ambassador Youth Board members and learn about how you can apply next year visit the Youth Board page.
The Anti-Bullying Ambassador team want to hear about your experience of bullying to help spread awareness of the different types of bullying and highlight how much of an important issue it is.
A Media Ambassador is someone who is happy to share their experience of bullying and how they overcame it with us. By sharing your experience you can help to show others that they are not the only ones who have been bullied, you help raise awareness of the issue and you help tell others how they can get through their bullying.
As a Media Ambassador you can choose whether you are happy to share your story on our website, in a newspaper, on the radio or even on TV and whether you want to stay nameless. By being a Media Ambassador some exciting opportunities could become available to you. We often get calls from BBC and Sky news asking to talk to young people who have experienced bullying. Become a Media Ambassador by answering a few questions here.
