ReachOut's Youth Ambassador speakers are our legend volunteers from across Australia who share their stories of overcoming challenges and tough times through the help of the ReachOut services. Youth Ambassador speakers play a key role in spreading awareness, breaking down stigma and helping young people across Australia.

  • You have a lived mental health experience that you're open to sharing. 
  • You have used ReachOut service(s) before.
  • You would like to build your public speaking skills.
  • You can attend our virtual 2-day workshop on the 23rd & 24th of November.

Re: We're recruiting for Youth Ambassadors - Join Us!

I'm interested! I'm not sure if I'd be able to participate with covid going on though. A couple of my housemates are immunocompromised so for their safety I don't leave the house unless I absolutely have to for as long as there's cases in our area, even when the restrictions aren't all that strict. Is that something that could still work given that, or should I hold on for a different opportunity?

Hey @squiggly!!

I'll double check with the daytime team once they are back on Monday, but I think that because this is a virtual event, you'll be able to contribute from home!

Hi @squiggly,

 

With the travel restrictions, @Tithi-RO has come up with an webinar style training, so those going through the training can do so from their own homes any where in Australia Smiley Happy 

 

Hopefully this means it is more accessible too! If it is something you are interested in, Tithi will also have some more insights if you have any more questions Smiley Happy

Re: We're recruiting for Youth Ambassadors - Join Us!

Thank you @Andrea-RO and @Jess1-RO!

I can definitely come to the training workshop! I'm more just unsure about whether I'd then be able to actually do the work after that... I suppose that's something I can ask about in the phone interview, right? In any case, I'm keeping my ears peeled Smiley Happy

Hey! I'm interested and I applied last week. I was just wondering when abouts I'd hear back or if applications have closed long before? Thanks Smiley Happy
