Still I Rise was established thanks to the incredible work of so many people who offered their skills and professionalism completely voluntarily and for free.
People who believe in the importance of education, and the possibility of a more equitable world.
We are always looking for people who are passionate and whose skills can help us improve and grow, benefiting both our students and the organization. Below you will find all the options available to volunteer with us.
We do not have specific volunteer programs in our schools as our teams on the ground are made of local staff who are constantly trained, and we prefer to maintain this structure in order to provide the most consistent service possible to all our students.
However, we want to expose them (as well as the field staff) to as many opportunities as possible for growth, training, and learning.
Do you have a specific skills set or a project to propose that you think would benefit our schools? Email us, we will assess it and get back to you.
To give some examples, in the past we have had a volunteer engineer who installed solar panels in our school and students' homes, a mind mapping specialist who trained both staff and students and a robotics expert who talked about his work and the future of the field.
Please note: For security and access reasons, it is not possible to propose a volunteer project in our schools in North- West Syria and the Democratic Republic of Congo. However, we consider projects and proposals that can engage these schools remotely.
Our schools are the focus of our work, and they are supported by a team of professionals in various fields working remotely, divided into several departments:
Advocacy and Communications
Are you a comms professional and want to help us improve how we communicate our impact?
Are you a HR expert and want to support us with time management training for our remote team? Are you an emergency education specialist and want to propose an activity to our team?
These are just examples of remote volunteer opportunities. We consider both ad-hoc projects/trainings and long-term volunteering, including from junior figures with a wide skills set. If you have a proposal, email us, we will assess it and get back to you.
