Volunteer with Us
Our projects are led by energetic, dedicated and caring volunteers from around the world. Bringing a wealth of experiences, skills and qualities, they are Actors for Education in their own right. Find out more about getting involved in our projects here.
Providing functional ESL classes to hundreds of teenagers every week, our volunteer teachers are essential in fulfilling the right to education. Get in touch stating your experience or to learn more about our schools and methodology.
youth centre workers
The Youth Centre is one of our flagship institutions, catering for the psycho-social wellbeing of 150 young adults every week. If you have experience with youth work, please get in touch to find out more.
chefs and drivers
We are on the look out for experienced and enthusiastic chefs to join our project on Chios. Not only providing nutritious meals to our school children, but our Chef also directs and runs our vocational Cooking School.
NOT CURRENTLY RECRUITING
Since many of our students and youth centre beneficiaries are under 18, we ask everyone who volunteers with us to obtain or share information of the DBS (basic disclosure). This is a vital safeguarding measure.
We believe it's important that our volunteers are a community. Banding together helps with long hours. As such, we provide free shared accommodation in 2 city apartments for all who come. These may not be luxurious penthouses, but they are our shared home.
Volunteering with Action for Education is not voluntourism. The hours are long and the psychological demands can be high. We provide support and training throughout the process.
