Our education programme, The Hero Project, helps to teach 16–18-year-olds about the importance of donating bone marrow, blood and organs. As an education programme volunteer, you will give presentations to students to explain the facts about donation and inspire them by showing them that they have the potential to help save a life.
The role involves visiting sixth forms, colleges and youth groups and delivering inspirational presentations, answering questions from young people and distributing information leaflets and giveaways. You’ll also be attending annual training events and keeping up to date with guidelines and best practice.
We are looking for volunteers with basic IT skills who are enthusiastic about working with young people and confident communicating messages in an engaging way. As all our presentations take place during school hours, you’ll need to be free between the hours of 8am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
We’ll provide you with a standard presentation, a toolkit full of information and training on how to deliver this. You be supported in your role by your local Regional Register Development Manager and before you give your own presentation you’ll be able to watch someone else deliver a presentation and help with one yourself.
If you incur any expenses as part of your role (e.g. lunch and travel) we’ll reimburse them in line with Anthony Nolan’s expenses policy.
