Do you want to help more state school students have inspirational, life-changing encounters? Our free charity programme helps high-profile speakers from every sector volunteer to pass their insights, experience and expertise on to students.
We are looking for an occasional volunteer to support our programme lead in contacting schools and basic administration to ensure they are able to take a part of our free programme.
About Speakers for Schools
Speakers for Schools provides young people in state secondary schools across the UK with access to talks from leading, eminent figures, free of charge. Through giving access to these eminent figures the aim is to help level the playing field across state schools through these unique insights and inspiration, in hope of broadening horizons, encouraging and empowering students of all backgrounds.
Since launching the charity has attracted a network of over 1,200 speakers donating their time and travel, and over 4,000 free talks have been organized with state schools and colleges across the UK. We are currently working hard to organise as many school talks as possible this academic year. In order to achieve this, we are looking to bring in an enthusiastic volunteer to help support the Engagement Team at peak times.
