How does it work?

  • You’ll receive Democracy Ambassador training resources that include a ‘start-up session’ and ideas for supporting your Democracy Ambassadors to deliver peer to peer activity (such as running a session for the rest of the group, posting a vlog on social media or creating and sharing a short videos or quizzes with peers online).
  • Using these training resources, you’ll deliver an initial 2 hour session to your Democracy Ambassadors.
  • You’ll continue to work with your Democracy Ambassadors to help them reach their 50 and then 100 peer to peer interactions.
  • You’ll report back to Young Citizens on your activity.
