Application Form to Become a Speaker

Become a Jack Talks Speaker and bring positive mental health messages to hundreds, even thousands, of young people across Canada. 

Who can apply to become a Jack Talks Speaker?  
Anyone between 18 and 26, but TBH, this is a loose restriction. As long as you’re at least 18 and able to relate to young people on a peer-to-peer level, we encourage you to apply. 

How do I apply?
Fill out the online application form (below) and a member of the Jack Talks Team will get in touch. Questions? Contact the Jack Talks Team directly:
