volunteering

Volunteering at WEN is a rewarding experience in a number of ways. Volunteers have the opportunity to learn about feminist environmentalism from one of the only UK organisations active in this increasingly important field. They also get unbeatable work experience in an organisation that gives them real responsibility and an equal voice, helping to grow their confidence and encourage them to learn by doing. WEN volunteers have gone on to paid jobs at organisations such as Sustain, Women's Aid and Greenpeace.


" Volunteering at WEN has been an amazing experience. In an organisation of this size there is real scope to exercise initiative and make significant contributions to WEN’s aims. The team are always receptive to new ideas and supportive to volunteers, who are treated as valued and vital to all WEN projects. Volunteering at WEN offered the chance to build my skill set and improve my CV without compromising on ethics, which was really important to me as I started my post-uni career."- Georgie Johnson, Media & Communications Volunteer, 2014
