International Medical Corps is working with schools, colleges and universities around the UK to deepen the engagement of young people with the issues of humanitarian aid, global health and the international consequences of conflict and poverty.
The best way for students, teachers and schools to get involved with International Medical Corps’ work is through our Humanitarian Ambassador Scheme.
We are looking for young people in the UK, who share our passion for building a safer, healthier world, to join the International Medical Corps’ Humanitarian Ambassador Scheme.
As a Humanitarian Ambassador you will play a vital role in our work saving lives and rebuilding communities affected by disasters, conflict and poverty.
Humanitarian Ambassadors help us to spread the word about our work, share ideas and spark debates about humanitarian aid and global health. The action you take includes a mixture of fundraising and awareness raising activities in your school or local community as well as opportunities to get creative in writing or film-making, to spread the message even wider.
International Medical Corps provides ideas, advice and all of the materials and support you need to make your activities a success. We also celebrate our Humanitarian Ambassadors at the end of each school year with formal recognition of the important role you play in our work.
Full details of how we reward your involvement in the Scheme can be found in the Ambassador information pack.
The scheme has three levels, which allows you to get more involved depending on your age and how much time you have to contribute. Have a look at the different levels of the scheme and decide which type of Humanitarian Ambassador you want to be.
If you want to get involved in the Humanitarian Ambassador Scheme, you need to find a teacher who is willing to help supervise the Scheme. Think of this as your first activity- finding a teacher that shares your enthusiasm and convincing them to help you take part
All the information that teachers need to know can be downloaded here in the Ambassador school and teacher pack
