What is A World at School?

A World at School is a digital mobilisation and communication initiative harnessing the efforts and energies of the many NGOs, teachers’ organisations, faith groups, individuals and youth campaigners to make education a reality for all of the world’s children.

We provide tools, connections and platforms to amplify the voices of our partners to achieve one single goal - all children in school and learning.

What are the Global Youth Ambassadors?

In our efforts to build and strengthen the emerging youth movement for global education, the A World at School Global Youth Ambassador Programme is a global network of young people campaigning in their schools, communities and countries for action to get every child into school and learning. 

A World at School Global Youth Ambassadors are young leaders - aged 14 to 29 - with the interest, passion and dedication to be part of the global education solution.

We have 500 youth ambassadors working in 80 countries.

What do A World at School Global Youth Ambassadors do?

They:

  • Mobilise and organise other young people to stand up for education
  • Make their voices heard in their communities by organising events, participating in campaigns, writing letters to the editor, running petition drives and taking part in other campaign activities
  • Make their voices heard globally by writing blogs and news stories and sharing photographs and videos from events and projects for the global A World at School website and social media channels
  • Organise local/national education advocacy-related events and campaigns with their organisations and schools and/or in partnership with other A World at School Global Youth Ambassadors
