Volunteers needed: interfaith school speaking scheme

A request for Quakers to volunteer with The Faith & Belief Forum, as part of their interfaith school workshops:

Hello, my name is Jaishree, I’ve been part a freelance trainer at The West Midlands Quaker Peace and Education Project since 2010 and now work for The Faith and Belief Forum, an interfaith charity working in schools, universities and communities to build good relations between people of all faiths and beliefs, both religious and non-religious.

One of our projects involves training volunteers from different faith/belief backgrounds to speak at interfaith Q&A workshops in schools about what their faith/belief means to them personally. This provides an opportunity for young people to learn about, pose questions to and humanise people who may be different from them. We provide full training/DBS checks/expenses and we only ask speakers to commit to three, 1 hour, workshops per year, so there is not a big time commitment.

If you’d like to find out more or if you think of any individuals/organisations in the West Midlands who might be interested in getting involved with our work, please do get in touch. You can also apply to be a speaker on our website.

With thanks and kind regards, Jaishree. jaishree@faithbeliefforum.org
