Be a Living Subject at The School Of Humanity


Be A Living Subject 


Are you tired of being reduced to a label? Do you want to help shatter people’s preconceived ideas?   

We are looking for Volunteers to be Living Subjects at The School of Humanity. By sharing your unique life experience, your story will add to our syllabus of multi-perspectivity.  This is an exciting opportunity to set the record straight and shine a light on the many layers beyond your label. In a bid to help people find and connect with our common humanity, we invite you to take part in this unique live learning experience and open people’s mind at The School of Humanity. 

What you have to do:

  • Pick a subject / label that intrigues people about your identity e.g. Transgender, Ex-Drug Addict, Refugee, Child Bride, Anxiety, Social Housing Tenant, Universal Credit  
  • Share your life story in open conversation & help reduce prejudice and pre-conceptions 
  • Help create a safe space so Learners feel comfortable to ask questions (and equally be comfortable in answering personal questions) 
  • Time commitment: Events are on an ad-hoc basis and time commitment will vary from a couple of hours to a full day. 

Who we’re looking for:

  • People who are open with strong communication skills 
  • Friendly, respectful, polite and approachable 
  • People who are willing to share the realities of their life story 

What you'll get out of it:

This is an exciting opportunity to connect with new people, breaking down barriers and have fun at the same time. Not to mention, make the world a better place. 

Other benefits include:

  • Taking part in a truly unique experience
  • Joining our network of people passionate about social change
  • Invitation to volunteer socials
  • Something to add to your CV

*All volunteers will receive training ahead of participating at our events.
