Be a 999 Hero Representative

Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance recently launched a new Schools and Youth campaign, Be a 999 Hero, designed to raise awareness of the charity and to help familiarise children with the basic life-saving skill of making a 999 call. To ensure that this message reaches as many young people as possible, we will be visiting primary schools, nurseries and youth groups throughout Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. During our visit we will deliver a 30 minute interactive presentation for pupils in a class or assembly, which includes a surprise visit from one of our three mascots, take home goodies for children and a resources pack for teachers.

What will I be doing as a volunteer?:

- Attending primary schools and youth groups from the ages of 2-11 years old, delivering an award winning interactive presentation - Be a 999 Hero, lasting 30 minutes.

- Directing and helping our mascot at presentations.

- Attend secondary schools, delivering a interactive workshop to Key Stage 3 students (11-14 Years Old)

You will be working with our Volunteer Co-ordinator and the School's and Youth Co-ordinator.

How much time will I need to commit ?
