Become a EUniWell School Ambassador!
All young people should have the same opportunity to gain an education and make a career for themselves - this is what we at EUniWell want to contribute to with our School Ambassador Programme.
School Ambassadors are EUniWell university students from a wide variety of social and cultural backgrounds who promote well-being and life-long learning in society and especially among the younger generation. The Ambassadors participate in a variety of events, share information about EUniWell partner universities and local higher educational opportunities, and share their own experiences of higher education.
You are a School Ambassador we are looking for:
- If social diversity and equal opportunities have a high priority for you
- If you’d like to encourage underprivileged young people to pursue further education
- If you are open to share your own stories and experiences with disadvantaged primary and secondary school pupils and give them confidence to plan their future
- If you’d like to get to know the other EUniWell partner universities’ School Ambassadors
Advantages of becoming a EUniWell School Ambassador:
EUniWell School Ambassadors are building their C.V. by getting more experience working in an information-providing capacity, increasing verbal communication, spoken and written, skills, using their enthusiasm to inspire others and raising aspirations, improving presentation skills to groups of people, developing more effective team working skills, time-keeping skills, organising skills, and showing evidence of their being responsible, reliable, and approachable young people.
EUniWell School Ambassadors will benefit from collaborating and building a network with other students from European partner universities, providing opportunities to gain international experience, as well as becoming role models for many children.
