Become a School Speaker

… and do one of the most effective things you can do for the animals!

Viva! and the Vegetarian & Vegan Foundation School Speaker Training Day
Saturday 26 August 2006, 10am-5pm, at the Charity Centre, 24 Stephenson Way, London NW1 2DP
Speaking to teenagers in schools about vegetarian issues is a truly uplifting experience! You have an attentive audience that is genuinely sympathetic and open-minded. It changes attitudes, changes lives and lays the vital foundations for a cruelty-free tomorrow. It is also one of the most rewarding things you can do. And of course, you will have the fantastic Food For Life video to help you.
Training days are informal and fun and there’s no obligation to become a speaker.
You will:

meet likeminded people
increase your knowledge of factory farming, health and nutrition, the environment and developing world
learn how to tailor talks to different classes and ages
get top tips on successful speaking
learn how to give cookery demosThe day costs only £10 waged/£5 unwaged and includes a delicious vegan lunch and refreshments. You will take away your own copy of the Viva! Guide to Speaking in Schools, free copy of Food For Life video/DVD, leaflets and guides.

I'm thinking of going to the training day in Manchester in September, but don't really know what to expect. Anyone whose been to one of these, is it aimed at people who are already confident with public speaking or is it ok for absolute beginners? I have some problems with anxiety and am actually pretty bad at this sort of thing, but am thinking it might help with my confidence, or help with dealing with people questioning me about my veganism, and I would love to do school speaking if I ever get confident enough eventually.
