Have you ever wondered what it is like to be a Teach the Future (TTF) volunteer? If you would like to support our campaign then becoming a volunteer is one of the best things you can do. In this short blog you can find out what volunteering with us is like.

It is important to note from the start that you do not need to have any previous experience in campaigning! TTF is a very friendly environment where we all help each other to learn the ropes. In fact, volunteering with us is a great way to learn new skills and looks great on a CV. You also do not need to be an expert in climate or education policy. All that you do need is a positive attitude and desire to get involved!

There are no set tasks or required hours for TTF volunteers. You can completely curate your experience here. We have different working groups and you are welcome to get involved with whatever interests you. Our working groups include graphics, Westminster, inbox etc. We also have a general call at 8pm every Tuesday which all volunteers are invited to attend.

TTF is a volunteer led campaign and we are passionate about having no hierarchy within our organisation. There are student staff and adult support staff who help with the campaign, however they answer to the volunteers rather than telling them what to do. All decisions are taken democratically and everyone's opinion is valued. We take volunteer wellbeing very seriously and maintaining this is one of the key roles of our staff. 

The most important thing to stress is that we want volunteering with us to be fun! There is important work to be done but one of the most important things for us is providing a space for like-minded young people to work together as well as develop their professional skills. We pride ourselves on being a friendly and welcoming environment and believe that volunteering with us is an undoubtedly positive experience. 

We hope you are interested in volunteering with us, if you are please follow this link!
