LSE Volunteer Pledge

Dave Coles


David Coles

Volunteer Centre Manager

The London School of Economics and Political Science pledges to encourage volunteering among its students. The Volunteer Centre at LSE Careers and Student Union will continue to work in partnership to further develop student volunteering as an integral part of student life.

Volunteering offers benefits to our students and the local community in line with the school's values and commitments. By volunteering students can engage with the wider world, support the environment and gain new skills to compete in a rapidly changing job market.

We encourage departments within the LSE to commit to the points below:

  • Recognise the value volunteering has for students' personal development
  • Encourage volunteering amongst students
  • Promote volunteering to students using the resources available through the Volunteer Centre.
