The Speaker Tour 2018

Are you a young person affected by HIV or AIDS?

Do you have the skills, knowledge and passion to inspire other young people to take action?

Then we want to hear from you!

We are looking for a young, passionate speaker from the Global South to join us on our annual Youth Stop AIDS Speaker Tour.

In this voluntary role, you will tour the UK, to help bring to life the issues behind the HIV&AIDS pandemic by telling your personal story to young people and decision-makers, and inspiring them to take action. As well as telling your story at speaker events, the tour group will also take part in media interviews and support youth campaigning activities across the UK.

You will be in the UK for 3 weeks from approximately 7th February to 28th February 2018 (exact dates to be confirmed). You will have at least one full day off on each weekend.

After arriving in the UK, you will attend a 3 day training to prepare you for the Tour, and will then travel to events across the UK (including England, Wales and Scotland) for the following 2.5 weeks.

Interested? Great!
