School speakers

Committed to a humanist approach to life?  Enthusiastic and a good communicator? Keen to help young people learn about humanism?  Then you could volunteer as a Humanists UK school speaker!

Would you like to know more?
You can read more about becoming a school speaker on our training page.

If you’re wondering whether school speaking might be for you, or thinking of volunteering but have some questions, why not come along to one of our Introduction to School Speaking sessions?  These short, informal events are a great chance to find out what school speakers do and how you can get involved – and to hear from active speakers about their experiences and have your questions answered.

Introduction sessions are held online and are free to attend.  Reserve your place now.
