Here is a list to get you startedemail Ayeisha to find out more about volunteering some time with Compass. See below for info on some of our lovely current volunteers:
Malene Bratlie 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 Thomas 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 Dreyer 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.
