​Volunteers are at the heart of the WEA’s activity. As a primarily voluntary organisation, our members' contributions are vital to ensure we can continue to promote and deliver lifelong learning. Their commitment allows the WEA to carry out its charitable mission as a workers' education movement and making a difference in local communities.

All activities enable volunteers to develop their own skills and interests, and can lead to long standing friendships, more active social participation and, for some volunteers, employment.

WEA volunteers were responsible for setting up the hundreds of WEA branches around the world, and continue to help us spread lifelong learning for social change to new communities every year.
