The Movember Student Ambassador Programme is officially open for applications!  We’re on the hunt for passionate Mo Bros and Sistas who want to have fun whilst making an impact by raising funds and awareness for men’s health.
 
Student ambassadors lead the Movember campaign at their university through their own personal fundraising, driving sign-ups from societies and clubs, organising fundraising events and inspiring fellow students to help change the face of men’s health.

The programme starts with two training days at Mo HQ in London (accommodation, travel and food 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.
 
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 pub quizzes, shave downs, sports matches, hot wings eating contests, mo balls and, of course, lots of guys growing moustaches.
 
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 the Movember Foundation and special consideration for a summer internship at Mo HQ in London.

Chichester ambassador Eddy Hounsell led his fellow students to raise an incredible £8k. And he personally raised £2.7k through a series of physical challenges including cycling, rowing, running, burpees and a 60 second dip in the sea to represent each man who takes his life by suicide every hour.

Eddy says ‘there had never been someone to spearhead the campaign at my uni, and being the first person to do that really empowered me to try my best and set the bench mark for years to come!’. He says his favourite part of being an ambassador was ‘getting everyone behind all the weird and wacky activities... we got to have a laugh and do a load of good in the process’.
