Humanists UK - Young Humanists Ambassador

Details of the Charity:

At Humanists UK, we want a tolerant world where rational thinking and kindness prevail. We work to support lasting change for a better society, championing ideas for the one life we have. We’re committed to putting humanism into practice through our ceremonies, pastoral support, education services, and campaigning work. We advance free thinking and freedom of choice so everyone can live in a fair and equal society. Our policies are informed with the support of over 150 of the UK’s most prominent philosophers, scientists, and other thinkers and experts and we seek to advance them with the help of parliamentarians in the All Party Parliamentary Humanist Group. We strive to be the voice of humanists in public debate, drawing on contemporary humanist thought and the worldwide humanist tradition.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

As an Ambassador, you will network with nearby local humanist groups, Humanist Students societies and other relevant groups (e.g. sceptics groups), to ensure that the needs of 18-35 year old non-religious people in your area are met. No fixed hourly commitment per week is required and volunteers are expected to work independently.
