What does EnfieldThink about volunteering?

Published Friday, 23 January 2015

EnfieldThinks is looking for volunteers to help staff and promote Enfield’s first pop-up learning shop.

EnfieldThinks is a collaborative project run by Enfield Council, Birkbeck, University of London, Christian Action Housing and the borough’s further education colleges- Barnet & Southgate, Capel Manor and the College of Haringey, Enfield & North East London.

Based in Burleigh Way, Enfield, between from 7 April and 27 June 2015, the EnfieldThinks team will deliver an exciting programme of events designed to inspire and engage.

A full event schedule will be published in early February and will involve a series of lectures, debates, seminars and workshops on topics such as animal husbandry, floristry, politics and happiness. 

If you’d like to get involved,  the EnfieldThinks team are holding an information and recruitment evening on 3 February from 6-8pm in Enfield Civic Centre. To reserve your place or request more information please email.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Economic Development, Cllr Alan Sitkin, said: “This is a brilliant project designed to encourage people to do the subjects traditionally seen as difficult by young people – science, technology, engineering and maths.

“We want to help students make informed choices and promote the options available to career changers and people re-entering the labour market.

“We also hope to promote the educational options available for retired people and inspire intellectual curiosity amongst Enfield’s residents. If you think you can help us guide young people to unforeseen heights or help older people reignite their career or spending their retirement unlocking the secrets of the universe, we’d love it if you could get in touch.”
