HOW JUST LIKE US WORKS
Just Like Us empowers LGBT+ young people to champion equality and inclusion within schools and equips them, their teachers and straight/cisgender peers with the skills, knowledge and confidence to make their schools more supportive places where everyone can thrive. This happens through three initiatives:
Ambassador Programme: They partner with employers to train LGBT+ young people aged 18-25 as volunteers, who give talks and workshops in schools, which promote LGBT+ equality and challenge prejudice.
Pride Group Programme: Through training and providing resources to teachers and students, they support schools to set up their own LGBT+ and ally groups, to create a safe space for LGBT+ pupils in their school.
School Diversity Week: The annual national celebration of LGBT+ inclusion in educations, which sees thousands of students across the country organizing activities and events that tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.
THE IMPACT OF OUR PARTNERSHIP
The cost of one just one Ultra Facial Cream helps provide one Just Like Us talk in a school or college to champion LGBT+ equality to an average of 70-80 students at once. Our overall donation of £30,000 will help provide two volunteer hubs over a 12-month period, to recruit, train and support 30 new ambassadors. These ambassadors will go on to deliver talks and workshops in schools and colleges across the UK that will directly reach 10,000 young people.
We heard from Dominic Arnall, Chief Executive at Just Like Us about how our partnership will help facilitate real change; ‘Just Like Us are thrilled to work in partnership with Kiehl's who join us in working to eliminate homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying in schools across the UK. This partnership will enable Just Like Us to reach thousands of young people across the UK with talks and workshops championing LGBT+ inclusion in schools. We are delighted to work together to change young lives.’
