Schools Speak Out

Climate change. War. Injustice. These are the big issues of our time – and they're keeping people trapped in poverty. But given the opportunity, the young people you're teaching right now could tackle them all.

At Schools Speak Out, young people can demonstrate student leadership, take part in our latest campaigns and speak out about global poverty.

Participants may work towards the Duke of Edinburgh Award. They could participate in individual projects or start a regular school group. And they'll build experience and skills that universities, colleges and employers will love.

Take on a challenge and inspire the generation to end poverty.
