Help make real-world, lasting change to better uphold the rights of those forced to flee their homes.

Are you a student or recent school leaver looking to volunteer your time and make a difference? Look no further!

Join our international community of young activists and contribute to making real change for refugees, asylum seekers, and all those forced to migrate in vulnerable situations. Our student teams drive SolidariTee's mission and values, uniting their student communities in support of meaningful change for those forced to flee their homes.

What we do

A typical SolidariTee team will organise most of the following activities or campaigns during an academic year
 

  • Awareness-raising events: like panel discussions, conferences, and film screenings
     

  • Fundraising events: like quizzes, music nights, sponsored challenges and more!
     

  • SolidariTee t-shirts: photoshoots, campaigns and sales throughout the year
     

  • Social media: creating infographics, mythbusters and other educational campaigns

Ready to join?

Fill in the short application form below, and we'll get back to you within a week! For most of our roles, you'll need to attend a short, informal interview, organised by someone on our student team, before you can officially join.

Learning & Development

Lots of us on the team didn’t really know anything about refugees before we joined. That's a big part of why SolidariTee exists. 

In addition to learning about refugee issues and forced displacement, you'll also have the chance to gain knowledge and skills relating to:

 

  • event management

  • marketing & communications

  • fundraising

  • finance

  • humanitarian response

  • leadership

 

Each role on our team will leave you with lasting skills that apply to the charity, corporate, and academic sectors; leadership, target setting, financial planning, and advocacy are just a few of the skills that team members say they have gained.

Application Information

 

No experience is required, so long as you're committed to standing up for refugee rights and willing to do your part to make a difference - we'll provide lots of training opportunities and support along the way. If you have any queries, or access requirements which make filling in a written form difficult, please email teamsolidaritee@solidaritee.org.uk. Please note that all of our roles are voluntary.

Available roles

At SolidariTee we have a Central team, which leads our overall operations, as well as individual university teams based on campuses across the world. Our university teams organise campus-based events and campaigns. The time commitments below are estimates based on what previous volunteers have said, but we all work flexibly around our other activities.

University teams

Our university teams each have their own Team Lead, who receives lots of support from the Central team. Each university team runs a programme of events, as well as selling our signature SolidariTee t-shirts, to raise vital awareness and funds to support refugee legal aid and mental health support. Team members commit 2-4 hours per week, and Team Leads at least 3 hours a week. 

Central team

Our Central team is made up of 3 core teams, coordinates the activities of the charity as a whole. Most central team roles require a time commitment of 3-5 hours per week, and receive support from the student President and Vice-president. The 3 Central team functions are:  

Social media: creating infographics and mythbusters for our social media, as well as publicising events.

Education & awareness raising: organising awareness raising events and projects, including our annual conference and podcast series.

University Fundraising Co-ordinators: providing regular support to university Team Leads by helping teams to plan events and sell t-shirts. Our fundraising co-ordinators provide both motivation and practical support to university teams, and are a core function of SolidariTee's fundraising efforts. 

If you have any questions or would like more information on any of these roles, please reach out to teamsolidaritee@solidaritee.org.uk
