Here is a list to get you started
● Volunteer from where you are; write us an article, do some research for us, organise an event or let us know what interests you. You can also volunteer from where you are to assist our Welsh and Scottish Compass organisers.
We rely heavily on volunteers who have a variety of skills and interests. We already have excellent and dedicated volunteers who steer our Management Committee, scores of academics who help write our publications and committed local group co-ordinators who empower our network to grow, debate, organise events and make change happen. We really appreciate all of our volunteers and are always looking for more!
Just email Gerry to find out more about volunteering with Compass.
See below for info on some of our lovely recent volunteers:
I am in my final year as a BA sociology student at the University of Greenwich and I will be working on the Toolkit project. I have previously been involved with the Evelyn Oldfield Unit and their Research for Action and Influence course, a project that trains members of London-based refugee and migrant community groups to conduct research and further implement changes. I also write regularly for genderandthecity.com about issues concerning gender inequality.
Chris has recently been providing voluntary generalist administrative support for a range of Compass’ projects. Over the next few months he will be also be leading a local engagement project, working with local group contacts to create a comprehensive toolkit, with the aim of increasing the efficiency and number of Compass’ progressive groups beyond their London base. Outside of Compass, he is undertaking a postgraduate degree in International Public Policy and from September will be working with Cancer Research UK’s Cancer Prevention research team. He is interested in all elements of progressive politics, and would like to continue his regular, wide-ranging engagement with activities that ensure the smooth, expansive and inclusive running of progressive organisations and working to extend the reach of their ideas to an ever wider audience.
Chuck is the man behind GMAT Tutor London, a role he fell into after teaching literacy and Maths at a north London secondary school. He’s also now the Chair of Governors of Tyssen Community Primary School near his home in Hackney. He avoids the rat race in order to leave time for volunteering and other fun. Future plans include organising live music at a bar in Dalston, importing coffee, fabric and crafts from Tanzania, selling online educational training videos and managing Arsenal. If even one of the above comes to fruition, he’ll be pretty happy.
Chuck joined Compass after attending the Post-Brexit Alliance debate in July and is determined to do what he can to get a progressive government of whatever colour into power at the next Election.
