Join us as an Explorers Education Volunteer East London – Tower Hamlets, Hackney & Newham
We currently have a small team delivering fun and inspiring sessions to schools, groups and families in Enfield, Waltham Forest, Hackney, and

We are looking for people who can volunteer flexibly, can commit to at least 3-4 days a month (mainly week days) – usually between 9am – 3:30pm.


We'll provide you with resources and full training on how to deliver our sessions to children. You'll also have the support of an education coordinator as well as the other volunteers in your team, and we'll reimburse you for all travel costs.
