Youth Ambassadors

History

An effective feature of White Ribbon’s strategy is to have Ambassadors, who are respected and influential role models, promoting White Ribbon messages to their network and community. Ambassadors play a vital role in building support, visibility and promoting White Ribbon’s messages to new groups. They can keep the White Ribbon messages alive beyond the November campaign.

Increasingly White Ribbon is targeting young men and women to promote respectful behaviour in their relationships.

Over recent years the Counties Manukau’s White Ribbon coordinating committee has had a range of campaign activities involving local young people. This encouraged the Salvation Army to create a local Youth Ambassador Leadership Scheme which has now developed into the White Ribbon Youth Ambassador Leadership Programme (YALP)

Spoken Word Competition

The next event is the Spoken Word Competition which is being held  on the evening of the 26th September at Wellington College with some high profile judges including the Justice – Parliamentary Under-Secretary Jan Logie and some decent prizes (to be announced soon).

It would be fantastic to have every school represented at this region-wide event and what’s more, we will use segments of this competition in our annual November campaign.

There is some information about how to develop your entry in your handbook. Please promote the event within your school as entry is open to all students not just Youth Ambassadors. You could hold your own Spoken Word competition within your school if you like, or ensure your entries to our competition perform at your assemblies. You could watch these videos for thematic ideas. Download the Spoken Word Entry Form (available soon).
