Calling all students: Fly the Mo flag on campus

3 minutes read time

The Movember Student Ambassador Programme is officially open for applications.

Students step right up – Movember is looking for Student Ambassadors to lead the charge on campus for Movember 2023.

Applications are now open.

Have you got confidence, enthusiasm, awesome ideas and a burning desire to do some good in the world? If that sounds like you, get on board and let’s change the face of men’s health together.

" The whole experience was a humbling and indescribably gratifying experience that I will cherish forever.” Ross, The University of Sheffield "

What we want from you

As a Student Ambassador, you’ll lead your university in Movember’s nation-wide fundraising challenge. Competing for glory against over 100 unis, you will:

  • Rally sign-ups among students from all areas of your uni
  • Inspire students to fundraise for Movember, offering support, ideas and motivation throughout the month
  • Host fun and engaging events
  • Create a powerful sense of community across campus

And all while spreading life-saving awareness of the three key health issues facing men today: mental health & suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer.

How does it all happen?

The programme starts with training at Mo HQ in London (accommodation and travel costs are covered). The Movember team train Ambassadors on all things Movember, with talks and workshops from staff as well as previous Ambassadors, giving them the tools, confidence and knowledge to go away and run a kick-ass campaign with their fellow students.

When does it start?

Kicking off in Fresher’s Week, ambassadors take over their SU, sports clubs and societies, recruiting students to sign up and join their university challenge page. It’s all to play for each year in the university leaderboard, with lots of creative fundraising activities. Last year saw shave downs, ultramarathons, Mo-lympics, Express & Destress Painting, Mo darts and, of course, lots of Mo growing.

Why would you want to do it?

It's an amazing opportunity for students looking to gain key skills and experience in leadership, marketing, events and fundraising. In return, all Ambassadors will receive references from Movember, personalised support from Movember staff, and special consideration for a summer internship at Mo HQ in London.

Sheffield Ambassador, Ross Metcalfe, raised £1,380 himself and led his university to raise a whopping £49,593! He said his favourite part of being an Ambassador was

“witnessing the pure solidarity, and passion for men’s health across the university. The buzz across campus was incredible and it was an honour to see so many critical conversations take place.”

Worcester Ambassador, Freddie Barker said their best event was a games night including Anime, Dungeons & Dragons, poetry and musical theatre. Hilarity ensued during a D&D round in which contestants used everyday props to escape a treacherous journey into a secret chamber. They said they

thoroughly enjoyed attending/hosting events and encouraging people to talk about mental health & physical health in a non-judgemental - and often fun and light-hearted – environment.”

Yes, I'm in. So now what?
