What we do

At SolidariTee, we combine education and awareness-raising with direct support to refugees. We don't just talk about the issues - we're united with a goal of providing grants to our NGO partners providing vital legal aid and mental health support to refugees in Greece. 

Our events, infographics and advocacy go hand in hand with the work done by expert humanitarian professionals. In this way, we're making sure that we help those fleeing violence and persecution today, whilst also creating a culture change in support of refugees in the longer-term. 

Our Team

Our student team is the heart of SolidariTee. Currently, we have more than 250 student volunteers across 30 universities. 

Our student team is made up of regional teams based at individual universities and colleges. Each team works to unite their local community in support of rights and freedoms for people forced to flee their homes, in any way they choose. 

In addition to selling SolidariTee tees, each team organises events and campaigns ranging from conferences and bake sales to 'Dance 4 SolidariTee' club nights - you'll have lots of support, but each team is able to set their own vision for the types of activities they'd like to organise.

The regional teams are supported by our student central team, which coordinates some core functions and builds links across the whole team.

If you're not a student, you can absolutely still join our team! Depending on your level of experience, there are a range of ways to volunteer - follow the links below to learn more about the position for you.
 

Accessing volunteering

At SolidariTee, we are entirely volunteer led - we have no paid staff whatsoever. Volunteering can be an amazing way of building skills whilst supporting a cause you care about, but we know that different forms of privilege can make volunteering more accessible to some than others. We're committed to doing our part to ensure that anyone who wants to join the SolidariTee movement is able to do so, and seek to actively tackle barriers to inclusion.

 

We welcome applications from people of all backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, religions, and nationalities. We are an actively anti-racist organisation, and we recognise that racism, islamophobia, anti-semitism, homophobia, transphobia, and misogyny play a big role in the oppression that refugees and other forcibly displaced people face. We are committed to tackling these injustices both within the student body and within the affected population that our partner NGOs support. 

 

We would like to acknowledge a few specific considerations around inclusivity, specifically relating to financial privilege, disability, lived experience of forced displacement, and access to higher education, but if you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
